Bellisimo (sport)

Frilly double white blooms with green edges.  Medium green standard foliage.  An absolutely beautiful plant that, unfortunately, does not appear as described by hybridizer.  Still a wonderful plant by any name or description.

Bellisimo (sport)

Average Rating 4.8 out of 5

beautiful when it blooms

Love the blooms on this one, but not a frequent bloomer. The bright green is nice contrast from most of my other pink varieties. Foliage is more ordinary than other types and seems to like to develop new crowns.

This was my first violet purchase from the Violet Barn and it bloomed immediately. Absolutely lovely! Unfortunately, I rushed to re-pot my violet and it did not survive. More recently, I have discovered that if you wait a number of months before re-potting and provide adequate lighting, the violets do much better.

Thank you so much for another beautiful plant, I am so looking forward to see it bloom.

Ruffles everywhere!

Beautiful, lush, frilly foliage and blooms. It arrived in perfect condition, and already has new blooms coming up. I couldn't be happier with it!

Beautiful Foliage - Hardy Plant

I enjoy this plant. It is hardy and appears to be disease resistant. My plant (from VB) has a ruffled foliage that is lovely and the star point of this plant. Be aware that the foliage is a bit unruly, which I find to be an added interest to the plant. I find this plant is not a great bloomer. The flowers are beautiful but there are not many and they are far between. This plant also likes to throw suckers, which is handy for more plants but you need to pay attention to make sure you don't end up with multiple crowns. If this plant bloomed on a regular basis, I would probably rate it 5 stars. If you want a lovely unique plant for your collection this is a good choice.
