name of plant

fixintojunkJuly 11, 2007

I have a plant that was my mother-in-law's that I need some information on.(she recently passed away) She raised African Violets and she also had some other flowering plants that she called "apecia". Evidently I am not spelling it correctly.....can anyone help me with the spelling???

thanks.

Hi,
I believe the word you are looking for is Episcia. It's a member of the gesneriad family.

Thank you Fred. I had spelled it every way I could imagine, but not with an "E". Thanks again.
