The plant known as 'Saintpaulia Robertson' is the newest taxa to become available in the United States. This plant was collected by Ann Robertson and Quentin Luke in 1988 at an elevation of 100 m in the Kilifi area of Kenya. The flowers of 'Saintpaulia Robertson' are medium blue and large compared to many of the other species. The flowers are slightly cupped and are found 4-6 per stalk. The leaves are thick, much longer than wide, and pointed. The leaves are medium green with a pale green reverse. The petioles of mature leaves are often strongly arched, bending the leaf blades downward and giving the plant an interesting "fountain" appearance. (Source: http://www.gesneriads.ca/saintart.htm)
