This plant is one of the easiest to grow that I have found of the Russian/Ukrainian varieties. It is a showstopper for sure. I love the different shadings of the pink, and then the green trim really sets it off.

Wow does it make you wait! Ordered it in April, finally blooming now. Spent all this time just getting large. Not quite as vibrant as the picture but very pretty nonetheless. My guess it wanted more fertilizer than others. I'll try repotting next with a touch of bone meal. If your space is limited I'd say violet barn has violets that are much readier bloomers.

My Mother's Favorite

Of all my plants, my mother likes this one the most. The plant produces a beautiful and symmetrical rosette with no effort and copious buds. Leaves and blossoms complement each other beautifully and I love how big and full they are.

Awesome Blooms.

This is one of my favorite plants. The blooms are brilliant with both the raspberry edge and green band.
