Episcia is a genus of flowering plants in the African violet family, Gesneriaceae. The cultivar 'Cleopatra' is grown mainly for its attractive foliages that are velvety, and its colour combination of cream-white, pale pink and pale green. The flowers are bright red and furry, short-lived. This plant is slow-growing due to lack of chlorophyll and requires more extra care than other Episcia cultivars.
