Lyon's Plum Pudding

Average Rating 4.8 out of 5

Didn’t do well

This plant died. . It was very tiny and didn’t survive. I was hoping for a beautiful plant. My plant was the youngest I’ve ever received from VB. Very disappointed.

beautiful plant

I was very excited to get this one! I unfortunately lost it and have to order another but it is one of my very favorite violets of all!!

Tough, beautiful, and well behaved

Plum Pudding gets my award for Best Overall. After a very difficult year where I had to leave my plants in someone else's care, Plum Pudding made it through with flying colors, still blooming in spite of it all. The flowers are beautiful, vibrant plum purple, and the plants themselves have a very tidy habit. A+

Strong Plant, Easy To Grow

I have had this Lyons Plum Pudding several years now. It has grown well and survived even if I forgot to water it a time or two. The flowers are a beautiful dark purple against dark green leaves. I have truly enjoyed this plant and the great service I get by the Violet Barn.

This violet is GORGEOUS! A deep velvet purple with leaves the perfect shade of green to compliment the blooms. Veins in the leaves have a bit of a purple tint to them. Very hardly plant - even when I have not been as attentive as I should have been. If you love purple you will love this violet. If you aren't a purple lover you will be after seeing these blooms!
