The Streptocarpus formosus Gesneriaceae (the African violet family). It is a perennial herb that is distributed in the eastern part of South Africa, from Eastern Cape to KwaZulu-Natal. It grows in rocky depressions in small valleys in a subtropical climate with clear rain and dry seasons. It is a stemless species, and string-shaped leaves gather in a rosette shape. The leaves are mostly fleshy, with white fine hairs on the surface and prominent veins. In addition, a delamination is formed at the base of the old or damaged leaves, which are cut and new leaves sprout. From late spring to fall, the flower stalks are borne to bloom trumpet-shaped white flowers. The corolla has 5 splits and a lilac edging. The back of the center is yellow.
