Bristol's Dust Bunny

Wonderful, small growing variety.  Lots of stick-tite sdbl. reddish purple-black blooms with white mottling and backs on short stems held in bouquet above flat, compact foliage.  An excellent little plant that is easy to grow and always seems to be in bloom.  A favorite of ours.

Bristol's Dust Bunny

Average Rating 5 out of 5

High hopes, trying again

I had high hopes for this strep based on reviews but it's almost dead. I think I went wrong by quite a few times falling asleep while bottom watering and it did not take well to the insecticidal soap that I treated all my plants with. :( I trust the Violet Barn's quality so I'm going to try again!

So many blooms!

My Bristol's Dust Bunny was my first Streptocarpus. This tough little plant has not only survived my not so tender care, it is blooming like crazy. I'm hooked. Now I want them all!

Dust Bunny Quite a Trooper!

Dust Bunny survived my ignorance (I did not transplant in time and failed to manage the temps adequately) and is blooming very nicely after its near death experience. Lovely small plant! Would recommend highly.

Bristol's Dust Bunny

One of the first streps I ever purchased and got me hooked on growing more. Blooms constantly. Very compact and small grower. One of my all time favorites.

Blooms well

The blooms on this one are nicely netted. For me, at least, it has kept pretty small, although the length of the flower stalk seems to depend on how well I have been caring for it, and the seasons.

Unbelievably profuse bloomer

I bought this plant two years ago and it has tripled in size and the amount of blooms it produces. Highly recommend this beauty.

Love my Dust Bunny

I've had this beauty for about a year. It has bloomed nonstop. Foliage is lush and a nice dark green which compliments the blooms nicely. Thanks, once again, Violet Barn, for your beautiful plants and excellent service.

I LOVE the plants that I have ordered from you! I am ordering this one now. You got me hooked on Streps! They have brought some sunshine into the "quarantine" days that we are all dealing with at the moment!

My favorite little Streptocarpus!

I purchased this plant in July being new to Streptocarpus. It started to bloom within a week or two of receiving it. It has bloomed non stop going on 4 months. I treat it the same as my mini violets and it is very happy! This is very pretty plant with very nice compact foliage!

Love Your plants

I received this plant a few weeks ago with two others. They were all packed so well & were all very healthy looking. Bristal’s Dust Bunny has a bloom ready to open. I am so excited to see the flower. The other two are doing very well. I just placed another order last night for some more plants & some supplies. Thanks Nancy Gordon

Beautiful "Dust Bunny"

Arrived well-packed and healthy; after re-potting to small self-watering pot, it bloomed within a week. Beautiful orchid-like flowers -- my favorite!

Dust Bunny...

I had gotten a healthy and very pretty Bristol's Dust Bunny. After almost killing the poor thing re potting it in to big of a pot. I potted into a smaller pot and to my amazement the Dust Bunny is a hopping and healthy. I have other Streps that I ordered from Violet Barn and they are doing super... Kathy
