Family Gesneriaceae

The Plant Family Gesneriaceae includes a number of familiar plants.

Flame Violets (Episcia)  belong to the Genus Episcia. I have two varieties (below) although there are many more including Episcia with blue and yellow flowers.
Flame Violet, Episcia (unknown species)
 They also have different types of leaf colours ranging from silver or green to burgundy leaves.

The depth, intensity and combination of colours on the leaves can also differ slightly depending on how much sunlight the plant gets.
