Solid Color African Violet Blooms Have Swirly White On Edges

Question From: L. Mangold - Hernando, Florida, United States
Q: Hi Nancy, My question is about solid colored african violet blooms that have white swirly colors on the edges. Is it diseased or from insecticide?

A: Take samples of the leaves to your independent garden center that sells these plants for an accurate ID and control. Some varieties are bred for this effect. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
