It is hard. The leaves look like Streptocarpella Concord Blue, the flowers - S. saxorum, but saxorum has more rounded and plump leaves.

Look at the pics.

Tangee -

That's interesting how different people perceive variety.
For me streptocarpus subgenus streptocarpella doesn't have that many different colors, at least what's available in culture - the hybrids. What I saw is slightly different shades of purple blue from baby blue to more purplish and and albino white of the same type.

I guess I am spoiled by the colors of hybrid streptocarpus subgenus streptocarpus...

You lucky guys in CA can grow them in hanging baskets outside and enjoy their bloom without complaining how much space it takes and how spent flowers are littering the floor...

Good luck
