Msikaba Streptocarpus Overview

This exciting ornamental, with its strap-shaped leaves in a central rosette and lilac to mauve bell-shaped flowers, was recently discovered and named from cliffs along the Msikaba River in the northeastern Eastern Cape. It shows potential as an indoor perennial and for breeding and development of new cultivars.
