African Violet

African Violet (Saintpaulia ionatha)

I rescued these from the 'drastically reduced' corner of the nursery - (soon to be thrown away). I just loved the colours so I'm hoping I can get them a little bit healthier than this and then see what the flowers are like.

Fantastic lavender double there and lime like leaves, great. I love saving saintpaulia from the about to go area....lol. No reason to let them get tossed just for finishing blooming...lol.
