About this book

African violets are iconic, one of the most important of all plants in the nursery trade for pot-plants. Every year millions are sold in nurseries, super-markets, and flower shops around the world. This book gives insight into their exotic origin, the perilous state of the species, and their shrinking habitats in East Africa. This monograph on Saintpaulia contains a unique record of paintings of all known African Violet species.
