What is a trailing African Violet?

Most varieties of African violet are of the single crown type, where you have a rosette growth pattern. There are however, those varieties that will branch and produce more than one crown. These are called trailers and ideally should have at least three crowns for a nicely shaped plant. Trailers are great for hanging baskets and you have to worry less about keeping that perfect round shape of the plant.
