Persian violet bears pretty bluish or white flowers that are easily kept in bloom but difficult to get to rebloom.
The Persian violet is usually purchased in full bloom with 1/2-inch blue or white flowers spread evenly over a rounded ball of foliage. The one-inch leaves are shiny and oval in form.
It is easy to keep the Persian violet blooming for three or four months. After that, it begins to go downhill. Although cuttings can be taken at this point, they never seem to equal the original plant in size or floriferousness.
