Violets....From....SPACE!


Saintpaulia ionantha Optimara 'Evergrace'

Just felt like sharing. This is one of those fancy African violet "space plants". African violet seeds were launched into space and orbited the Earth for six years. The plants that grew from these seeds were full of neat mutations and were in general bigger, more vigorous, and had neat looking flowers with two or more colors.
