Albuquerque African Violet Club

African violets have long been the favorite of all houseplants.  Their seasonless blooming adds beauty to our lives and their ease of care make growing them rewarding.

The Albuquerque African Violet Club was formed to promote interest and provide education for people interested in African violets.  We meet the second Tuesday of most months at 1:00 at the Albuquerque Garden Center and we welcome visitors!
