Cape Primrose

Flower
Family Gesneraceae
Name Streptocarpus Spp.
Common Name Cape primrose

  See also:  Ornamentals

Streptocarpus is a large genus of plants, found in South Africa. The rosette forming perennial species are the parents of the modern day hybrids. The common name, Cape Primrose, is a bit of a misnomer, as it is not related at all to primrose, but instead is a gesneriad. Examples of other gesneriads are African Violets (also not related to violets), Gloxinias and goldfish plant.
