Weekend Herb Blogging # 27
I have decided to try my hand at African Violets. The two you see here are in front is a "Miniature Country Angel" and the one behind is a "Strawberry Daiquiri Standard". I got these for myself for my birthday today. I am hoping to be able to do cuttings and make more plants. There are over 250 different varieties of African Violets and I could not possibly name them all. I do have a few favorites though and most of them tend to be varigated and have purple and white flowers or pink and white flowers. The two shown above are no exception. You cannot see it very well, but the SD most inside leaves are nearly completely white. As I learn more I will share what I learn. Right now they are in "transistion" as I get them accoustomed to their new home. I will do my first cuttings around Easter provided they are healthy and thriving.
You can see more pretty green growing things at Kalyn's Kitchen. She does a round up every weekend on Sunday evenings. Share your favorite "anything green grows" with her too! And check out the other bloggers who share thier favorite herbs and plants.
Have a great week everyone!
