      Outstanding My favorite plant, I recommend to others all the time and explain the reasons why I like it so much.
    • Streptocarpella is the perfect hanging plant for a shady front porch. I hang up three pots of these every year, and I always wonder why it's not more widely available--the supermarket garden centres and little neighbourhood garden stores never seem to carry it. Streptocarpella has pretty little purple flowers on stems so delicate that they quiver in the slightest breeze--which looks so nice. As well as the pretty flowers, it has cute fuzzy leaves. It grows steadily and dependably, getting puffier and more filled-out, so it provides a bit of privacy on my front porch. And it is so long-lasting--I keep mine hanging on the porch for months and they look good until the frost sets in. (I hear that it will over-winter indoors, but I never do that.) And it's easy-care: unlike many plants in pots that must be watered daily or they shrivel up, streptocarpella is quite forgiving of a watering lapse, and can go a day or two without watering. And I don't dead head it ever. The only downside I've found with streptocarpella is that some of those pretty little purple flowers fall off the plant from time to time, so the porch floor can become a wee bit sprinkled with the flowers. However, since the fallen flowers actually look kind of nice on the porch floor, and they quickly wither away to nothing, I never sweep them up.

    • Love this plant - hard to find at local garden centers. Just blooms all summer. The color is amazing and the combination of leaves with fine long stems extending from the main plant make the flowers look delicate and airborne. Love It!
