LE Violetta

Average Rating 3.8 out of 5

Great plant!

This one is a strong grower and went from a tiny little two leaf plant to one of my largest streps with an abundance of healthy leaves and many blooms! One of the leaves tends to do primarily purple blooms but all the rest look just like the picture with big white centers. I personally like a little variety. But it was a healthy little strep to start with and has continued to flourish. Thanks!

Does not always bloom true (can even bloom solid purple)

When the first plant arrived from the VB, it bloomed solid purple. I sent a picture and asked for a replacement. They sent a new plant but said that the photo I sent didn't look like anything they sell. The replacement has a SPECTACULAR purple and white bloom that has a flat shape more like a gloxinia bloom. Yesterday I posted photos of it on two streptocarpus Facebook sites, and everyone RAVED about it (it got over 200 likes between the two groups). Then this morning two group members told me that this type of bloom doesn't always bloom true and can even bloom solid purple! (So, I WASN'T sent the wrong plant the first time!) I just had to post a caution on the two FB groups that I learned that my plant was a "sport" and that I didn't want anyone to order the plant thinking that their blooms would end up looking like mine. Too late. Two people had already ordered the plant. I wouldn't be surprised if The VB gets SEVERAL orders based on my photos.

Stubborn bloomer

Months later and 10 healthy leaves later, 2 blooms finally arrived. Unfortunately, the blooms were plain purple and nothing like the picture. Not sure if I received the correct plant.

Captivating!

This may be one of the best "roulette" type Streps available! A robust grower with beautiful flowers... rich purple, surrounding Snow White centers. There is also veining visible within the purple border, adding more interest. I love it!
