Botanical Encyclopedia
This attractive genus of the African violet family consists of about 50 species of rhizome-forming perennials or subshrubs from tropical regions of the Americas. Their tubular flowers are usually felty, pendulous, single or in clusters, in an outrageous array of gaudy colors. The entire plant, including the flowers, is covered in bristles.
These plants are tropical and frost tender; in all but tropical climates they are treated as plants for heated greenhouses or as indoor plants. In the tropics, give them a moist shaded site in which to grow. Water sparingly in winter. Propagation is by division of clumping species in spring or soft cuttings from shrubby types.
Zones 10-11


This plant has been said to grow in the following regions:
