The Toronto African Violet and Gesneriad Society is a not-for-profit group whose aim is to share the 'addiction' of African Violets and Gesneriads by fostering interest among its members.
We're not strangers,
only friends you have not met!
The gesneriad family contains over 3,400 species of plants
Perhaps the best-known member of the gesneriad family is the African violet (Saintpaulia)
