African violets are one of America’s most popular houseplants. They belong to the Saintpaulia family and are not related to the hardy violets found in outdoor gardens. Under the proper growing conditions, they will bloom almost continuously indoors. Horticulturists with Iowa State University Extension and Outreach explain how to grow African violets.
