Col. microphylla

Fantastic!  Spectacular, even for the tiniest of plants.  Dark, green leaves with reddish backing and stems and bright burnt-orange blooms.  Will produces blooms larger than the plant, even in a 2" pot!

Col. microphylla

Average Rating 4.7 out of 5

Impressive Blooms!

Got this one a while back. It crawls all over my terrarium and blooms with huge bright red flowers! Love the tiny round leaves.

Happy Accident

Received as an accidental addition to my shipment a year ago. Plant has not bloomed but I have made no real efforts to push it. It continues to shoot out new stems regularly with the longest being about 18 inches long. It just generally looks awesome.

First columnia

I decided to branch out. I have over 30 strep from Violet barn. I have many African violets. I haven't had this baby very long but she came in great shape with many tiny leaves. Not sure how long she will trail but I plan on sitting her on top of an upside down antique milk glass goblet.

Worth the wait!

I ordered one of these, arrived as a starter plant (as expected); and after surviving severe pruning from my puppies it is now over 5 feet long and when it blossoms (which it does regularly) is covered in blooms 10 times larger than the leaves! Took a few years, but well worth it. An amazing natural beauty. You can stick a cutting in a terrarium and it will run across the ground and bloom- fun!

I need to study up on this one

I order this plant at the same time as 3 others. All arrived healthy, and were repotted immediately. It grew but it not glossy beautiful like the photo, in fact I'm a little worried about it. I attribute this to gardener error since the other two African Violets are thriving. I'm going to have to read up on this one to figure out what I am doing wrong because I would love for it to thrive.
