Nursery ...

streptocarpus saxorum ... (EN)
... One common name is Cape Primrose, referring to
the nativity of several species to South Africa and
their superficial resemblance to the genus Primula.
The genus is native to parts of Africa and Madagascar ...

... The Streptocarpus is a fairly new introduction as a houseplant
and because there is not a wide information base on these plants
new terminology is being introduced to describe them.

EN: Cape Primrose, false african violet - NL: draaivrucht
FR: primevère du Cap - DE: Drehfrucht
