LE Chateau Briand

Average Rating 5 out of 5

Huge flowers

I bought the plant in the June 2021. I changed pot. I had first flowers in the August. It was only three flower-bearing stems, only eleven flowers. But the flowers were huge, almost 3"! Maybe it was the first, but flowers were not dark ruby-wine, it were violet color.

LE Chateau Briand

I enjoyed this for many years - the blooms were frequent and absolutely spectacular. I didn't pay close enough attention to my AVs when I moved a few years back and couldn't keep it going. I was so happy to see that VB still carries it. This one is as fabulous as the first, and I cannot wait to see it bloom!

Great contrasts

I bought this plant in 2019 and it did not do so well for me and finally died. I was able to put down a leaf before I lost it and surprisingly the babies off the leaf have down beautifully. The plant that formed has lovely medium green leaves that contrast beautifully to show off the darker ruby-wine blooms. I debuted it to encourage more leaf growth and see it is trying to produce 4 more bloom stocks. It is a lovely plant.

Blooming Quickly!

I am not an experienced plant grower, by any stretch of the imagination. I decided I wanted some flowering plants in the house, that would be easy to take care of and cat friendly, should somebody choose to chew on one. So after researching some violets, I decided to go with Violet barn, and I am happy I did! This plant was my first purchase, and I couldn't be more thrilled with its progress in the last month. It's in a window that isn't particularly sunny during the winter, but it already has sprouted several flowers and is looking extremely healthy. I will definitely be purchasing more varieties!
