How Long Will African Violets Live?

Question:  How long will my violet live?

Answer:  Indefinitely, if properly cared for.  Just keep providing your violet with good care and regularly repot it.  Violets have incredible survival instincts, if given half a chance.  Ethel Champion, a nearby grower and longtime AVSA member, has the old violet that we know of.  Her plant of ‘Superman’ dates back to the 1950’s.  Even at that age, it still occasionally appears in our local club shows!
