Anthoflores African Violets

Anthoflores African violets

Anthoflores African violets are found in supermarkets and home improvement centers throughout the U.S. and Canada. Produced in Ontario by Harster Greenhouses, many growers are first introduced to African violets through these popular hybrids.

When I first started growing and collecting African violets I got most of my plants from Home Depot, supermarkets, and a large local nursery. Most of them were Optimara or Rhapsodie series, Ultra Violet African violets, or Anthoflores African violets.

Anthoflores African violet descriptions are often difficult to find, and many collectors start keeping a log of Anthoflores African violets as they come across them on the Web and from other growers. Below for reference is my unofficial, collected list of Anthoflores violet descriptions. You can see photos of the ones I’ve grown here. (Some photos are over 20 years old!)
