Buy Saintpaulia 'Madison Red' African violet: A stunning cerise-red african violet

  • Position: bright but indirect light
  • Compost: fertile, good quality potting compost
  • Rate of growth: slow
  • Hardiness: tender (indoors only)
  • Pot covers: choose a 14cm pot cover, put some gravel under the plant to raise it up in the pot cover

    Gorgeous, rich cerise-red single flowers with distinctive yellow central anthers, form a posy above the rich furry green leaves on these well loved plants. Perfect for windowsills out of direct sunlight, they can flower for many months. Please note that the pot in the photograph is not supplied with the plant (which is sent out in a black plastic pot). They do however make excellent potted plants, and if you wish to pot yours up, we do have a wide range of pots on our website to choose from.

  • Home care: The perfect environment for these plants is bright, warm and steamy, so a bathroom or kitchen windowsill is ideal. Try to avoid cold draughts and direct sun, and ensure the foliage does not touch the window - otherwise it may get scorched. Water the plants regularly (from the base), but allow the surface to become dry before repeating the process. They also love being misted with water when they are not in flower. Remove any dead flowers or foliage as soon as they appear, and only repot (into a plastic pot) when the plant becomes root bound.

Arrived a little bit bedraggled and lopsided (since the photo I have removed from the growpot and re-positioned to level it out), and a little bit caterpillar eaten (complete with offending beastie!). Perhaps not a specimen I would have selected for myself, but going to let it settle down then set about trying to encourage a slightly more appealing. Otherwise not a bad little violet, just in need of some tender loving care! Delivery could not be faulted, very well packed. Nice to see such care and attention given to setting plants up for delivery.
