Photographs of Some Related Gesneriad Plants

Many African violet growers like to supplement their collections, and expand their interest by growing some of the other plants in the same family as the Saintpaulia. That is, the Gesneriad family. It includes many beautiful examples, some of which are very popular house plants. The photographs shown here include some old favourites and also some less usual plants from this large and mainly tropical plant family

Sinningia is another genus in the family. I have many Sinningia photographs on this site. To see them, select any of the three Sinningia links on the Photo Galleries page

Apologies. If you have been unexpectedly referred to this page rather than the photo page you expected. Please update your links as a necessary rewrite and upgrading of this site means that the Gesneriad photographs are now permanently indexed here. To see a full size picture please click on the thumbnail.
