Sansevieria Parva is a flowering plant that grows in the eastern African forests. It is a slow-growing perennial with flat, succulent leaves. Commonly known as Kenya Hyacinth, this plant got its name from the lovely hyacinth-like smell of the flowers. Unlike many Sansevieras, it can bloom regularly.
Sansevieria Parva was first discovered in 1915. Nicolas Edward Brown was the first to provide the description of this species. Each rosette of S. Parva has around 6-18 leaves. And, the rhizomes are brownish orange in color. Sansevieria Parva also has a variegated cultivar which has vertical yellowish-white stripes.
Sansevieria Dooneri was considered as a closely related species to Sansevieria Parva. Both naturally grow in similar habitats and look almost the same. Now they are assumed to be one species having slight variation due to micro-habitat factors. (Source: plantsoftheworldonline)
