Wallpaper Description:
Ƹ̴Ӂ̴Ʒ AFRICAN VIOLET Ƹ̴Ӂ̴Ʒ

The African violet may just be the perfect houseplant. It blooms readily and has no specific flowering season, so it can be in bloom year-round. And it's easy to multiply and share with others. As a result, it's found worldwide, from the Far North to the Antarctic, anywhere there's a cosy windowsill for it to grow on.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Its genus name is Saintpaulia, for Baron Walter von Saint Paul, who discovered it in 1892 growing wild in what is now Tanzania. The most common species is ionantha, meaning “with flowers like a violet,” an apt description, since the wild plant has purple-coloured flowers with two small upper lobes and three larger lower ones, much like the violets (Viola spp.) that grow in Canadian woodlands.
