156:365 They are Each their Own

This is a Russian African violet. Hybridized in the former Soviet Union. It's name, in English is Ian-Persik, pronounced Yahn-Persik. It's a stupendous show plant when it's really in full bloom. Not too bad here, though :-)

Actually, in English it's Ian-Peach. :) "Persik" means peach.

Thanks for that info :-) This leaf was one of the very first Russian leaves available here - before any decisions had been made on how the Russian varieties should appear in the AVML.
