Rob's Twinkle Blue

Average Rating 4.9 out of 5

Prolific bloomer!

I love the tiny miniatures, and I find Twinkle Blue to be one of the easiest to both grow and bloom. I have it in several terrariums, and I absolutely love it!

Helen Grasseschi Mar 10 2023, 18:07 PM

My Twinkle Blue

I have always been afraid to try one of the smaller of the miniatures because I did not trust myself to keep up with a small violet's needs. However, I have been so happy with My Twinkle Blue. I purchased this little Blue a few years ago and am delighted to say this little violet has not required extra special needs as I feared. I keep most of my violets in self watering pots to keep me from over watering or spilling water on the crowns rotting the plant. My Twinkle Blue is happy in the dark blue clay pot. The plant is a nice compact shape. The leaves look groomed with gorgeous semi pointed thick waxy leaves. And the beautiful blue flowers are just precious. An added delight is the flowers continue to bloom no matter the season.

First minis

One of the first minis I acquired, reliable bloomer under my growing conditions. (wick watered, under artificial lighting)

Akshai Wilkinson Jan 15 2023, 12:22 PM


Love this little plant I received it in perfect condition. It is growing well under lights. I have it in a self watering pot and it seems to be doing very well! No blooms quite yet but new leaves are forming! Very excited to see the blooms!

Jacob Smoot Nov 28 2022, 12:05 PM

I’m in love with this tiny one!

I received Twinkle Blue about a month ago and already it has 5 bloom stems. It’s going to be just covered in blooms! This is my first AV with bell shaped blooms. I can’t wait to see them open!

Dana Gibson Oct 17 2022, 18:53 PM

A cute gem

This violet is very cute and dainty. My favorite part about it is that the dark leaves seem to sparkle!

Kyla Searcy Oct 17 2022, 01:56 AM

Cute little violet

Twinkle Blue is my absolute favorite mini violet. It stays small for use in dish gardens and terrariums and always comes through with a beautiful array of vibrant blue blossoms. *

Penny Wichman Jul 26 2022, 12:30 PM

So dainty

It is the daintiest cutest little plant. With the daintiest cutest little flowers.

Lee-Ann Theesfeld Jul 25 2022, 19:53 PM

Such a cute little plant. Beautiful flowers.

Very nice

Nice plant, came in bloom. Flowers are bluer than in the pic.

Rob's Twinkle Blue

Rob's Twinkle Blue was ideal for me because it is so small. What I like most about it is that it isn't flashy - it has an ideal balance between leaves and flowers, and the flowers are beautiful but 'modest'.

Kirk Davis Jul 08 2022, 09:22 AM

Cute little tiny baby

I ordered this violet a while ago, and it is truly truly tiny. It growing beautifully, and I am anxious to see the tiny blue flowers. I love all my violets, but this one is really "my baby". I gave it 4 stars just because I did not see the flowers yet.

Arianna Bottoni Apr 22 2022, 14:05 PM

Tiny perfection

I ordered Rob's Twinkle Blue years ago, and while I ultimately prefer standards, this mini is absolute perfection.

Rebecca Nippes Apr 16 2022, 20:57 PM


This plant is gorgeous. So so pretty! Buying another for my sister!!

Jill Dorman Apr 06 2022, 08:08 AM

Stunning in person!

Just received this violet and the foliage is beautiful and already has several flower buds! Beyond pleased with my purchase as usual :)

Shellie Posavatz Mar 27 2022, 14:16 PM

Great tiny violet!

This is a super tiny violet. It gets beautiful flowers and is a hardy little plant. I love it!

Jessica Czarnik Mar 21 2022, 14:29 PM

Beautiful little thing!

ordered this and a jolly diamond, and not even two weeks later they arrived in perfect condition! they haven’t lost any leaves and we’re still packaged wonderfully even though shipping banged it up a little! i can’t wait to for them to bloom, and will definitely be ordering again!

Lyrica Singh Feb 17 2022, 13:39 PM

Very Sturdy

This little violet is not as delicate as one would think based on its size. I was uneducated on suckers when I purchased Twinkle Blue, and it initially suffered from many. Once I was able to remove and keep them at bay, it has been a spectacular bloomer for me. So symmetrical now.

Kimberly McAbee Feb 06 2022, 22:07 PM

Darling little violet

This is easily the tiny violet I have! Very easy to grow and very symmetrical. Absolutely a joy!

Stephani Boswell Feb 06 2022, 13:45 PM


I wrote a review on this Tiny Violet and I forgot to star rate it I give it 5 .

michael alford Jan 01 2022, 18:01 PM

A Precious Treasure

My sister gifted me one of these little precious treasures a few weeks back and I ABSOLUTELY ADORE it. It is delightful to have in my home!

Melody Corley Oct 17 2021, 23:12 PM

Mini violet

Love this violet, it fit in a tea cup by my chair and smiled at me all the time. I haven’t gotten it to bloom this year so am moving it to a nice sunny window this fall and see how it does. They are great little violets to have around in special places.

Jennae Giles Sep 29 2021, 15:28 PM

Absolutely adorable!

This is such an adorable, perfect miniature. Many miniatures are very finicky, but this one seems a bit more lenient with care. If you're new to mini violets, this is a must have!

Sarah Starcher Sep 16 2021, 16:50 PM

Oh my goodness!

Rob’s little Twinkle Blue is the most gorgeous, darling thing ever! The leaves are a beautiful deep green and the tiny little blooms are a beautiful sapphire color that pop through the leaves and truly appear to “twinkle”! So lovely I had to buy one for my sister!

Robin Ferguson Sep 15 2021, 21:16 PM

Favorite for symmetry

I love this little girl. She is so symmetrical and the dark foliage is really stunning.

Taylor Shepard Aug 27 2021, 22:51 PM

A little beauty

I received this little plant in my last shipment it came with some beautiful little blue blooms I can't wait till it's a matures and becomes a little bigger it's really a beautiful little plant it came in great shape

Chuck Kessinger Aug 23 2021, 20:32 PM

Classy and Beautiful

This is a teeny tiny mini with super dark pointed foliage. Mine came in bud and I can’t wait for them to open up. This little guy is going in my mini orchid terrarium.

Amberlee Norris Aug 14 2021, 17:38 PM

So lovely

I bought this one back in September and couldn't be happier with it. It's so teeny, perfectly symmetrical and I can't wait to see the bloo. S

Steffany Mattioli Feb 06 2021, 09:42 AM


I received this a few weeks back. It is so cute! It’s a very healthy plant but hasn’t bloomed yet. I recently moved its location so hopefully it will bloom soon. Looking forward to seeing it bloom!!

Lida Morris Oct 09 2020, 12:39 PM

My favorite violet

I'm pretty new to AVs, but this violet instantly became my favorite. It's absolutely tiny and adorable, and arrived in perfect condition. I bagged it up for a few days after repotting to ease its adjustment to my room, and it's doing great now! It had a few buds when I got it and is just starting to bloom -- the flowers are beautiful. Also, its tiny size is great for my limited shelf space. Highly recommend this plant!!

Luna Malloy Sep 17 2020, 12:40 PM

A Hardy Micro

Tiny, tough, green leaves with blooms proportional to its size. Always keep one in my collection, along with its twin — Twinkle Pink

Maya Pahima Sep 17 2020, 11:51 AM


My first micro miniature, but not my last. Pretty little blooms atop shiny, tiny heart-shaped leaves makes this one a beauty for sure!

Carol Buchanan Sep 03 2020, 14:29 PM

Adorable little violet

I ordered from Violet Barn for the first time about a month ago. These plants arrived safe and sound. Packaging was superb! This plant is doing well. Can't wait until it blooms!

Lida Morris Aug 15 2020, 14:03 PM


This violet is so cute and pretty, great quality!

Cute tiny thing!

Jessica Duty May 24 2020, 01:34 AM

So cute!

This never stops blooming! Excellent little plant

Patricia Marshall May 18 2020, 01:49 AM

Beautiful plant

I ordered this plant (and others) a few weeks ago. I used to collect AV but stopped after I moved. I've been wanting to get back into it, and found this website. The plants all are healthy, well-packed for shipping and are thriving in my home. Of course it is too early for flowers, but I have no reason to believe they won't continue to grow and flourish. Highly recommend.

PL Atkinson May 12 2020, 08:37 AM

It twinkles!

This violet is absolutely stunning. One of my favorites.

Julianne Lindsey May 11 2020, 21:14 PM

Miniature Beauty

A tiny little violet with pretty indigo blooms. It shapes nicely and is one of the smallest violets that I have, with each leaf being smaller than my thumbnail. Cute!

Brittany S. Apr 30 2020, 21:56 PM

Love it!

I’m a big fan of blue blooms!!!! And this is the tiniest and sweetest of them.

Christl Shirey Apr 26 2020, 11:55 AM

So glad to see this guy!

I’ve purchased this beauty in the past... SO blue, SO teeny! But lost it last year. Grabbing another today! Yay!!

Dana MacMillan Apr 25 2020, 16:24 PM

Tiny and Perfect

My new plant of Twinkle Blue arrived and it is gorgeous. It has symmetrical growth with perfect, dark little leaves. I can't wait for it to flower

Jeffrey Tibbetts Apr 18 2020, 13:51 PM

My favorite!

Out of all the varieties, the dark green velvety leaves with the purple sweet flowers is always my favorite!

Sarah Crabb Apr 04 2020, 20:46 PM

I Had to Have Another One!

I bought this one a couple of years ago and I loved the dark leaves and the little blue flowers. It was almost constantly in bloom but due to a heater failure this past winter I lost almost all of my AV's. I knew though when I went to rebuild my collection that this one was at the top of my list.

Gregory Payne Mar 22 2020, 22:47 PM


Beautiful little plant, mine is about to bloom.

Tracey Basaraba Mar 20 2020, 11:18 AM

Doing great in my terrarium!

I used this violet as the focal point in my terrarium. Rob’s Twinkle Blue does not disappoint!

Gabe Skidmore Feb 13 2020, 00:05 AM

Adorable and truly miniature!

This is one of my favorites because of how tiny and cute it is! It's doing well but I haven't seen any blooms yet! I'm eager to get another one and set up a terrarium; this little baby has me hooked on miniature plants now!

Erica Branch Jan 06 2020, 13:27 PM

So tiny!

I received this as part of the 10 sellers choice miniatures. It’s doing great! I planted them all in dandy pots. It’s getting ready to bloom!

Kimberlee Keefe Dec 30 2019, 22:05 PM

Sad Little Plant

I've placed several orders from Violet Barn and I've ordered this specific plant twice and both times it lasted a month or so then just conked out on me with no explanation. I think most of my other plants from here are still doing okay but there is something with this little one that doesn't last.

Julie Montemarano Dec 06 2019, 21:39 PM

Absolutely adorable!

I've purchased several Rob's microminis over the years but this is one of my favorites. Over time it makes a cute little mound of absolutely itty bitty leaves with beautiful small flowers. Definitely a wonderful choice to add to any collection!

Sarah Starcher Oct 30 2019, 11:43 AM

So Tiny

I just received Rob's Twinkle Blue in my order of 10 Seller's choice. I was thrilled to get this one as I really like the blue and purple violets. I can't wait to see it bloom. All the violets I ordered arrived healthy and almost half were blooming! Violet Barn does a wonderful job of packaging their plants for transport. Thank you, Violet Barn!

Tracy Stobbe Oct 26 2019, 13:11 PM

Cute little plant!

This is the cutest little violet! Mine just started blooming. The little blooms are lovely!

Celeste Matthews Oct 15 2019, 16:48 PM

Get children interested

Children can learn to love plants with this violet that will bloom so well for them.

Lovely Miniature

This is the violet that first caught my attention and made me order from violet barn. Arrived in perfect condition. Love the dark, pointed leaves and can't wait to see it bloom!

Bethany Allen Aug 24 2019, 11:49 AM

The Cutest!

O my gosh. Just received. This has got to be the cutest thing I've ever seen. Not to mention, perfectly packaged, perfectly shaped, and in bloom!! ❤️❤️

Laura Power Aug 22 2019, 16:28 PM

love the teeny ones :)

I grew this one years ago, and I loved its tiny cuteness. I am ordering it again because I recently got back into violeting! Can't wait to grow it again. :)

Amy Trept Jun 21 2019, 02:38 AM


This is an exquisite little jewel of a plant It is growing strongly and is very symetrical I love looking at it Thanks VB Another winner in my book Gulfcoastgal

donna woehr Jun 08 2019, 22:41 PM


I almost lost this one but saved it. The blooms are in proportion to match the tiny LeavesI. I give it 4 stars.

Anonymous May 29 2019, 14:49 PM

Too Cute!!!

I bought this sweet little plant and it arrived in perfect condition. I am so happy that I am buying more violets today! THANK YOU

Mary Burns May 13 2019, 08:47 AM


So. Freaking. Cute. Everything is adorable from the tiny, cup shaped flowers to the pointed little leaves. It did very well for me this past year, always with a few flowers on it. Unfortunately, a temperature/watering mishap this winter almost killed it, but it held on with a single, tiny leaf and is coming back from the brink of death! It's in my "flower hospital" now and expected to make a complete recovery.

Kimberly Smith Mar 26 2019, 21:44 PM

Rob's Twinkle

Such a tiny beauty! It arrived very well packed, in great condition, no broken leaves and with blooms! I have never received a damaged plant Violet Barn. Thanks for that!

Rob's twinkle Blue

SO very tiny and so very healthy looking -it has more flowers than leaves-what a gem!!

REGINA HENDERSON Feb 18 2019, 15:28 PM

Tiny perfection

Since so many reviews already mention the immaculate packaging I will skip to the unwrapping and the happiness felt when I first saw the four plants that made it safely through the middle of winter. Rob’s Twinkle Blue was a perfect, tiny replica of its larger relatives, much smaller than I’d imagined but a great introduction to microminiatures. In just a little more than a week it seems to be adjusting to its new home with new leaves coming up. I can hardly wait for the blooms!

Kyle Wallace Jan 12 2019, 08:07 AM

Rob's twinkle Blue

I had the best luck with this little cutie. The leaves are pointed and the flowers are so tiny and cute. Love this little plant And easy to care for.. NM

Rob’s Twinkle Blue

Sweet tiny little violet with lovely burple blooms. One of my favorites ever.

Diana Sterrett Jul 10 2018, 21:46 PM

Rob's Twinkle Blue is Small & Adorable!

Rob's Twinkle Blue is a tiny, beautiful African violet. It has deep green leaves that grow and lay nicely and produce darling little flowers. I put mine in a Dandy Pot so that it won't dry out, with 25% liquid fertilizer to 1 gallon of water. Janice Penny, Huntington Beach, CA

Janice Penny Jun 20 2018, 00:16 AM

Rob's Twinkle Blue...

I ordered this little guy because he was so little and cute. I received the plant in good shape and in bloom. Despite a good start, I couldn't keep him alive. The plant dried out so quickly that I couldn't keep up with the watering needs. Putting in a larger pot was not advised. In my opinion, the really little plants are for someone who doesn't travel much and is home to take care of their frequent watering needs.

Carolyn Spurlock Apr 18 2018, 11:04 AM

Tiny and loves to bloom!

I love, love, love my Twinkle Blue Sweet little pointed leaves and lots of darling blue blooms. You can't go wrong with this one. I have a pic of mine as my screen saver!

Dorothea Widerski Apr 14 2018, 15:56 PM

Stunning vitality, radiating health - Rob's Twinkle Blue is an All-Star

This little guys is just about the cutest little creature I've ever seen. In all of its tininess, it is just radiating vitality. It was the first time I've ordered a microminiature, but now I'm back here on the site, browsing for more. I spent this afternoon creating a few little DIY self-watering pots with wicks. Tomorrow I'm going to head into my workshop and to paint the reservoir containers in acrylics. I really could not be happier. A big thanks to Rob and all the crew at the Violet Barn!

Suzanne Picard Feb 05 2018, 08:08 AM

Tiny and lovely

Potted into a tiny china cup, this plant is stunning. Vigorous and has been blooming almost constantly.

Clarence L Harper IV Oct 02 2017, 05:59 AM

Tiny & Mighty

As with all VB deliveries, this plant arrived in perfect condition. I am so in love with the micro size! It is the smallest plant I have ever had. I cannot wait for it to bloom!

Terri Winters Sep 29 2017, 18:48 PM

What a fabulous plant!

I just got my order this last week and this little guy made me smile when I unwrapped him. Fabulous! All the plants are! Such care in packing and shipping. Thank you so much!

Elizabeth Bernel Sep 10 2017, 21:20 PM

a real winner

this tiny but exceptionally vigorous mini is easy to grow and flowers profusely, highly recommend this!

Tiny and loves to bloom!

I love my tiny Rob's Twinkle Blue. I've had it for several years and amongst the hundreds of violets I have, it is still one of my favorites, in fact, I have a picture of him as my wallpaper on my laptop!

Dorothea Widerski Jun 30 2017, 15:21 PM


This is the sweetest little plant. I was very impressed with packaging and shipping. ALL the plants I received are lovely!

Sue Sloan Apr 16 2017, 20:31 PM

Too cute!

I ordered this plant years ago, it was so tiny & cute. Unfortunately it died, not sure why, possibly over watering. I'm hoping to order another in the future.

Brooke Benson Apr 05 2017, 01:14 AM

Proud to own this tiny plant

This was one of 4 plants I received yesterday, all perfectly packaged and arrived safe and intact. Already has perfect symmetry. Can't wait for it to bloom! Very happy.

Sherry Valencia Nov 18 2016, 16:01 PM

Tiny and perfect!

I was so surprised by how tiny this gorgeous plant is. Perfect leaves, perfect rosette and tiny little buds. Just beautiful. The fact that it survived shipping considering how small it is, is a testament to the excellent packaging by Violet Barn. Thank you!

Katherine M Burns Nov 16 2016, 13:37 PM

Must Have!

This is the cutest african violet you can imagine. Give it a try, it's tiny but strong and a good bloomer. I love it!

Debra palmer Oct 22 2016, 21:16 PM


My mom has ordered from the violet barn before and always had good luck. This was my first order and it arrived today in great condition. This little beauty is lovely, and is already in a sunny window happy as it can be. I'm actually ordering another little violet today I'm so pleased.

Hannah Stinson Oct 20 2016, 14:02 PM


Love this lil one! Blooms like crazy. I smile every time I walk by!

Jennifer Endonino Oct 11 2016, 20:44 PM


If you want a fantastic really little African Violet, this is the one I recommend! I have had it for a couple of years and it LOVES to bloom. I have it growing in a thumbpot, so if you want one that takes little space and gives you beautiful dark purple blooms and has the cutest little dark green leaves, this is for you!

Dorothea Widerski Oct 01 2016, 23:07 PM

Beautiful little guy

Gotta love this little guy. The leaves are a great green color , darker at the base. The leaves on mine tend to stand up a bit which I actually like. Sweet. The flowers are lovely. Mine arrived with the flowers broken off but it has been 4 weeks and already full of bud stems. Won't be long. A greta addition to my desk.

Ray Aug 23 2016, 15:45 PM


The color of these wee blooms is absolutely amazing! A must have!!!

Jennifer Shepard Aug 09 2016, 21:28 PM

Wrong Twinkle

I ordered Twinkle Pink, but they sent me Twinkle Blue. Still I love it :) I'll order the pink next time. I received all my plants in good condition. The only setback they are all in crowns, no root, too bad they can't sent full plants :(But I still happy and definitely order from them again :) VB note: Only crowns of plants (no roots or soil) are permitted when shipping to Singapore.

Selvy Lukito Jul 23 2016, 00:54 AM

Twinkle Blue

This little plant is so cutie. Came with 4 flowers plus more buds!

Diann Klotzbier Jun 06 2016, 19:39 PM

2nd order... After 5 yrs !

I placed a order from vb 5 + yrs ago (maybe I'm mistaken, thought it was Ron's something, back then). 5 yrs later, and violet's I bought back then are still going strong! I, very highly recommend these guys!

David Jacobs May 08 2016, 09:54 AM

Love this tiny cutie!

Rob's Twinkle Blue is such a darling little plant! Really dark leaves and tiny flowers are such a treat to see. My violets always arrive in perfect condition because they were so well packed. Never a single broken leaf and more than likely you'll find buds. I have given Rob's violets as gifts several times and they are always appreciated!

Alice Apr 25 2016, 19:27 PM


Love this little violet! I am buying one today as a gift for a friend.

Blue Ribbon twice

I just love my wee Twinkle Blue. Great bloomer. I've entered him in two AV shows and got a blue both times. SO very happy with him!

Dorothea Widerski Nov 27 2015, 16:09 PM

Darling little violet!

So tiny and pretty! It really is easy to care for and has lots of flowers. My violets have always arrived in perfect condition, most of the time with blooms and no broken leaves. Never worry about the condition of your plants on arrival from The Violet Barn.

Anonymous Sep 24 2015, 01:18 AM

You are so right!

The Violet Barn could teach my orchid suppliers a lot about proper packaging and delivery. After multiple orders, never have I ever received a plant with the least bit of damage. Upon opening the box , the organization is quite impressive. I've also learned the secret to unpacking. Unlike other packers, I dont damage the plants unpacking them they are so cleverly packed. Kudos!!!

Bruce Winfree Aug 06 2015, 03:48 AM

Forgot to rate

Sent in a review and forgot to rate. I want to give credit where credit is due. Plant is adorable and arrived in excellent condition. I live in Hawaii and was hesitant about ordering online. I was so impressed by the packaging and speedy delivery that I've ordered 2 more times. Thank You!!!!!

Irene Fukuji Jul 17 2015, 12:39 PM

Cutest, tiniest violet EVER!

Received my micromini violet, and was so impressed with the quality of the packaging...not even a speck of perlite out of place. The violet was perfect, and loaded with tiny buds. Thank you for such great plants!

My plant arrived in pristine condition and full of blooms and buds. It was packaged with care and I really appreciate that ! In only 24 hours the leaves have perked up and it is a happy plant and I am a happy soon to be repeat customer. Thank you so much.

Pam Turner May 01 2015, 14:54 PM

Arrived in perfect condition

my first experience with micro minis, and for some reason it didn't thrive for me. Packing and shipping was excellent, so my inexperience must have been the cause. Am ordering another twinkle blue, plus voodoo blue and bunny hop to try again.

Karen LaBell Apr 15 2015, 10:23 AM

Healthy, wonderful plant

This cutie was a beautiful dark color on the leaves when it arrived. A couple of weeks later is tarted to bloom and made an impressive picture.

So Tiny So Beautiful!

I just love this plant!! I have started making terrariums and this plant will be my most favorite plant of all. It is so tiny but the flower is so pretty. It came already blooming with about 4 blue flowers and they have not dropped at all. I love it!!!!

Twinkle and Twinkle too

My first Twinkle Blue arrived almost 2 years ago with a bloom and tiny little leaves. It "grew up" to a whopping 2-2.5 inches across and blooms almost constantly. The dark leaves are beautiful and I love the bell flowers. I loved it so much I ordered a 2nd one and have them in glass globes on each side of my Violet table. They are terrific little violets.

This came in the mail about a week ago, and I'm absolutely infatuated with it. It is so tiny and absolutely gorgeous, I can't wait to line my windowsill with more minis.

Little Blue

I received this beautiful miniature "twinkle blue." It arrived with 3 buds which are starting to open. A tiny but beautiful plant.

Love this plant. It's as exactly as described.

Twinkled Out

Even though this little guy was in bloom, for some reason it died less than a month after I received it. I love your variety of violets. I cannot get enough! Ron

Got this itty bitty today and it already has 6 blooms on it! It fits perfectly in my mini self watering pot. Already in love with this one :)

Like a Fairy Tale

It's so small and perfectly shaped, this little wonder almost doesn't seem live. It is a bright, tiny spark of happiness on my window sill, blooming reliably. I can recommend it without hesitation and by extension, the Violet Barn. Great experience.

The cutest

I received this my plant today and was surprised to find this little thing in bloom. So cute and colorful. A true blue.

Love this plant

This plant had one small flower on it when it arrived. It now is covered! Looks great in my office. I have people stopping by daily to see how it's changing. Ordering another for my mom for her birthday!

Loads of Blooms

I've had this little violet growing on my window sill for just over a year now. It is so beautiful and tiny. It is covered with blooms. The only reason I am giving it 4 stars instead of 5 is because the leaves seem to grow in an asymmetrical way.

the cutest thang

I absolutely love miniatures of anything so when I recieved this order and laid eyes upon this adorable tiny thing with it's tiny little flowers..I was in love. It puts a smile on my face everyday when I see it.

Twinkle, twinkle little star!

Have had Rob's Twinkle Blue miniature for about a year now. The foliage is such a beautiful deep green and then when the deep blue blooms come, it just pops! Just ordered another one!

my favorite blue!!

This mini is very mini!! It looks dainty but handles not so great conditions like a champ. Blooms constantly. The blue bell flowers are so very cute and lasts a long time.

Adorable mini blue flowers

This adorable mini came in bloom and is hearty for it's small size. Definitely one of my favorites!

Robs Twinkle Blue

African Violets are my favorite plants I started a collection of miniature violets this year and Robs Twinkle Blue is one of my favorites. All the plants that I have bought are so healthy and beautiful. This will be my third order in this year.

"adorable" is right!

I received one of these as a gift years ago. The little plant was one of the best I've ever had. It hardly stopped blooming/budding for two years straight (and the little pointy, glossy, deep-green leaves were so cute by themselves). I was so sad when it got too cold while I was on vacation, and the poor thing never recovered. I still miss that plant!

Great little plant with perfect leaves and cute flowers. I'm a total African violet newbie and mine did really well. It arrived blooming and then put on another beautiful show a couple of months later.

special plant

I am starting a mini violets collection. This little guy is very special for me. I am so impressed by its tiny size. It is so cute!

Perfectly Tiny

I just received 'Robs Twinkle Blue' in my last order and it is such a little cutie. It arrived with a couple of blooms and has already added several more in the week I've had it. Leaves are a nice dark green and perfectly tiny. I love this little gem.

Toby Smith May 23 2012, 23:10 PM


Tiny and compact, spectacular little bloomer! Definitely one of my favorites!

Awesome mini!

I got this little guy a few months ago. They packed it well and it arrived safe and sound with no issues in the middle of winter. This little guy is going strong, and just started blooming for me. I highly recommend it!
