Hi Ruth,

Welcome to the world of violets! It is very difficult to identify the name of your plants as there are thousands of varieties. An African violet program called First Class2 has over 15,000 named varieties and there are many more.

If your violets are Optimara, there is a site which might help and the link to it is provided below. The important thing is to enjoy your plants, even if they are NOIDs(no identity). It looks like you have found a couple of beauties!!


Here is a link that might be useful: some Optimara varieties
