Bristol's Blue Bonnet

Average Rating 4.9 out of 5

Such cute little lilac-blue blooms

I was sent this strep as a freebie and would not have ordered it on my own. I always gravitated to the bigger streps and this one was listed as a compact plant. It has started to bloom now and has the cutest blooms on it. The plant is compact and I really do like it after all. Now that I have over 60 streps I can see the value of buying smaller and compact plants lol. I've heard people talking about this cute little strep and now I understand why it's popular. Even though it's small it makes a statement on its own.

The overall effect of this plant is stunning! Lots of blooms nonstop. This is my favorite smaller strep.

Beautiful blooms, great plant

This is my nicest looking strep right now. Some of my others have yellowing leaves, but not this one. It bloomed a few months ago and then I had to disbud all plants to treat for thrips and mites. I am now enjoying flowers again and this one seems to be blooming a little lighter this time ... truer to the picture, where before the upper blooms were darker. It is a very pretty plant. I am trying to move toward wick watering. This one has been wick watered for at least a couple months and has done well.

Beautiful Blossoms

I got this plant last summer and it has rewarded me with a ton of beautiful blossoms. It's taking a well deserved rest now and I'm looking forward to the next flush of blooms.

Bristol's Blue Bonnet

As with everything else I've ordered from the Violet Barn, this arrived in perfect condition, with leaves so healthy that the longest one is standing completely upright. I'm eagerly awaiting its blooms!

Easy Grower

This is my first Strep and I love it. It is easy to take care of and has started it's first blooming cycle with many more buds coming along behind the first.

Lots of blooms

I have had this plant before and loved it. I had to have heart surgery and was forced to give it away since I could not give it the care it needed. I am excited to order this plant again to enjoy!

Excellent bloomer

In the first six months this plant has tripled in size and has not stopped blooming. Easy and care free.
