Rob's Vanilla Trail: A favorite for a long time

A friend who grew gorgeous African violets introduced me to Rob's Vanilla Trail many years ago and I still adore it. Because of the amazing variety of African violets, we get tempted to move on to something new. There are some that can never be left behind and one of those is Rob's Vanilla Trail. It flowers readily and the foliage branches out so neatly that only a little pinching and pruning is necessary to get a full plant covered in blooms.

Ordered three trailers, Vanilla among them. Order arrived February 23. We still have snow here in New England. Granted, I should have probably waited for warmer temps but I saw this little one and I couldn't wait. As soon as we saw the postman the box was brought in. It was impeccably packed. All 3 violets were healthy and undamaged. Two were flowering. Not even the blossoms were touched by winter. I ran a stoneware plate under hot tap water and set the pots on it to gently warm the soil. This one is a bit darker pink than in the picture but adorable nevertheless. Two tiny waterlily blossoms of baby pink! Acclimated well overnight. Very happy with the order. Thank You, Violet Barn! :)

Gorgeous flowers

I had a friend a few years ago who had this plant, and any time I'd go over to visit them, I couldn't stop staring at the blooms. Her's was a few years old at that point, enormous, and covered in flowers. I'm hoping mine will look like that soon, too!

What a beauty!

My new little one arrived packaged carefully. She already had a cluster of light pink that would rival any miniature rose. Two weeks later, she is still blooming! Thank you for sharing her.
