Outstanding beauty! I can't wait for mine to bloom!

This plant has suffered a lot since coming into my hands. I went through a bad breakup and neglected my plants for a while, and this is one of the only plants from my last order that are still hanging on and doing ok. I even moved into the Rocky Mountains and have subjected it to a harsher climate. I decided that since it is still alive, I am going to do my best to take care of it and give it a fighting chance. Just repotted it two days ago. I recommend this plant to anyone who doesn’t have a green thumb.

Update on my 2012 review!

I've gone through many changes and a major move since I previously had Red Lantern. So, this summer I reordered this variety. It now has its first buds and I can hardly wait for them to open! Red Lantern is an older Lyons variety that's well worth adding to our current collections. I would hate to see it vanish like so many older violets have. All my orders this summer and fall have arrived in excellent condition. I love the way the Violet Barn packs! Cheryl Burkley

Wonderfully beautiful violet!

My mom, who has just terrible luck with african violets, received this little guy as a gift from a friend last year. I recently visited, and she has managed to kill all three of the thriving suckers that I had started for her, but this plant was THRIVING! She's so proud of it! I fell in love with the gorgeous LARGE flowers... and ordered one for myself!
