Saintpaulia velutina

Photo by Toshijiro Okuto

S. velutina has hairy/velvety leaves that layer very attratively when well-grown. An alternative view of this species shows a somewhat different shade of blue/purple. This difference is no doubt attributable to the use of different films. The blue/purple color range is notoriously difficult to photograph accurately. Another photo can be seen here.
