Name of the plant

I believe I found the name of the plant in my encyclopedia of Gardening - Shade Gardens. It reads:

Achimenes, the monkey-faced pansy


Related to gloxinias and African violets. That's where they get the hairy leaf.

  1. I would hate to be called a monkey faced pansy!
    In fact, NO type of pansy!

  2. It's nice to find the name of a plant, kind of drives you a little nuts looking for it though. Your Limelight is so nice!
