African Violets for Everyone

Plants for pure pleasure

My Sinningias (A-M)

These photographs represent my other plant passion - Sinningias
Sinningias are related to African violets being another genus within the Gesneriad family. 

While they are easy to grow, these hyrids of mine are mostly quite large plants and are mostly grown outdoors.

Please note this is not a catalogue of plants for sale. The photos are for information and enjoyment only.
