Stunning flowers!

I had been lucky enough to receive this plant in my order of five random violets. When I opened the container, it had a flower that just floored me, it was a flat magenta with a white lacey edge. However, the next flowers that started to bloom a week later, are white and there are a ton of them. Still beautiful but would love to see the deep pink once more.

Love the miniatures

I just received my second order from Violet Barn and I am in love with the miniatures. When I thought of African Violets it was the kind my grandmother grew, the standard ones. I didn’t realize that you could get miniature versions, nor that you could get trailing miniatures (my absolute favorites). They are so cute, so cute that I’m placing a third order just for more trailing miniatures. They are adorable!

A surprise fave

As a new AV enthusiast who previously only had a collection of garden center NOIDs, after much deliberation I chose a little Boondoggle as part of my first order of named varieties from Violet Barn. A few of the others were plants I've wanted for ages (and are doing wonderfully), but I was amazed at how quickly I fell in love with the ruffled leaves of this plant, which grow in such flat, near circles. When showing anyone my new violets, it's the one I point at. I feel like a show grower! And it only just started to throw up its first blooms - I'm this in love with it before the flowers have opened, and the flower color was why I chose it!

Heavy Bloomer

This is an adorable little heavy bloomer that has such a nice shape for show with little attention given. Love it!!
