Welcome to the Lone Star African Violet Council

LSAVC was founded in 1975 and is a resource for African Violet enthusiasts across the state of Texas. Members of LSAVC, including local African Violet Societies and individuals, are interested in sharing information about the culture of African Violets and other gesneriads.
