This is the
official WEB site of the Dixie African Violet Society (DAVS), a nonprofit organization,
founded in 1956 to afford an association of persons with similar interest in African
violets within an area not too vast for occasional meeting - - JOIN
thirteen states included in DAVS: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky,
Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and
Virginia. Groups primarily concerned with growing and showing African violets in
these states can become affiliate members of DAVS; however, individual membership is open
to all persons world wide.
Check our list of former DAVS
Presidents to see if you know any of them. We suggest new growers of African
violets and other gesneriads, review our growing instructions
representing the best procedures used by our members.
