Tina's April Fantasy

Average Rating 4.9 out of 5

I love it!

This one is indeed compact compared to other standards. The blooms are all speckled lightly in purple and they have a nice glimmer in the right lighting. One leaf had broken off during shipment and I put it down to grow, lucky me got two more plants and both look to have the leaf speckles too!

Stiking Foliage! I love the "elf varigation" leaves.

My plant just arrives. What immediately caught my eye was the foliage. There is an uncommon type of variegation on the leaves. This plant has spots and spatters of red pigment on these leaves, when it mixed with the green of the leaves there is an undertone of the earthy red of very dark bricks. The speckles and spots are called "elf variegation" (as in footprints of little elves), and is apparently a trait of this variety. It's also one of the reasons I wanted April Fantasy. Saintpaulia Ancestry Project had a post on elf variegation as of March 2020. I found info about the reddish splash variegation down the center of the leaves, it is a separate trait. The info is on allaboutafricanviolets.com. That site has an article from 2018 about an unnamed leaf chimera sport of April Fantasy that can pop up. I was apparently very fortunate and received one of those plants. I wish I could upload a pic of this plant, even though it isn't in bloom yet. From an earlier review, I think this leaf chimera has popped up before in plants from here! I wonder if Violet Barn will start selecting for the sport??? I sure hope so.

This is one that gets past by very easily on here, at least by me. If I were to explain it a little bit better. If it were in full bloom and on the table, you would not walk past it because it sparkles and glitters so brightly, that you could not walk past it. The purple catches your eye as well and the marks on the leaves are so unique, that you have to reach out and pick it up to look at it more closely. It really is a stunning plant. The violet barn pics need to get a better pic because this plant really is way more deserving of it than what is shown here. Buy it!! You will love it!

I ordered this on one of my first orders. It is just as pictured. It had one bloom when it arrived and now has 6 or 7 and a few buds yet. I love the light fantasy on these blooms, little streaks of blue. Hoping it stays compact as I mostly have mini's and semi-mini's.
