Beautiful! What kind of plant is it?

They're Streptocarpus, commonly named Cape Primrose,a member of the gesneriad family from Africa, Madagascar and S.E. China. They require the same growing conditions as Saintpaulia (African Violets) but like it a bit cooler

Beautiful pictures! My violets are blooming as well- regular watering is a good thing! I had a vine last summer with the same looking maroon flowers but different leaves. I'm wintering it in the house, so far, so good.
