One of our favorite growers introduced us to this little gem, a relative of those more familiar African violets. Perhaps you can see the similarity in the slightly fuzzy, little-bit-pudgy leaves? But the flowers - a whole different story! These trumpet-shaped blooms terminate in petals edged in tiny fringed rays.
Originating in Costa Rica, Mexico and Peru, Alsobia is hard to find, but vigorous and easy to grow. Looking for something a bit different? You've found it!
