Message from Mars

I’m so glad Mars decided to send the message! I love this plant. Very pretty crimson color and I’m a variegated violet person so I loved the leaves!!

Total excellence

Packaging meticulous, makes you feel special just opening. Six plants arrived perfect, some are ready to bloom-100% confident they will perform better than pictured. As Carley Simon sung the spy who loved me "nobody does it better."

Amazing Varegstion

When I first got this plant, it had little varegstion... after some growth it had the most beautiful varegation in my entire collection! The first blooms had disappointing color, but the second blooms were perfect red... and BIG! They would open, and then continue to get bigger and bigger. I’m ordering another one, as I lost my first to mites. That is how amazing this plant is!

Great Red!

This is my favorite red-- large flowers, true red color, and beautiful leaves that shape nicely. I will always have this in my collection!

Very healthy!

Arrived when they said it would. Very well protected and healthy. This plant didn't have blooms like previous order did. But leaves are prettty. Can't wait to see it bloom! Will definitely be ordering more from Violet Barn.

Prolific bloomer

I got this as a freebie and it became my favorite from the whole order! The color is deeper than the photo. The flowers are huge and prolific. Right now it has several blossoms open and many buds on the way. You'll love it!

Ma's Message from Mars

I received this plant as a freebee with my last order. It is simply beautiful.The blooms are big and a lovely color red.(not at all like the picture)The variegated foliage is very well behaved and has formed a very symmetrical rosette.

I am so in love with all Ma's violets! Ordered twice from them. All came perfect shape! I got this one as freebie! Love the deep large red flower! I was blooming when I received! Awesome! I am going to collect some semimini and maybe try some chimera this time! :)

1st time growing violets

Huge and Gorgeous!

This is one of the most spectacular African Violets we have ever seen. It has beautiful green, variegated foliage. The leaves are the size of the palm of my hand! It started blooming shortly after we received it and has not stopped, forming a beautiful burgundy bouquet of half-dollar sized blossoms which bring exclamations of delight from all who see it. Definitely a must for the violet lover!
