This is another of the caulescent, or stemmed, forms of Streptocarpus, usually placed within the subgenus Streptocarpella. Some growers and botanists believe that a separate genus should be established for these plants, as they appear to be more closely related to other genera (e.g. Saintpaulia) than to Streptocarpus. Closeups of the flowers may be seen here or here; a whole plant may be seen here.
