Rob's Galiwinku

Average Rating 4.9 out of 5

One of my favorites

This was my first miniature/trailing violet and I've been very happy with it. The plant is very small and compact, and though it looks cute, it's very tough. I've had a lot of trouble with watering my standard violets - it's either too much or too little. This little plant is far more tolerant of someone who's still learning. I suspect because of the small size of the pot, the dirt dries/moistens quicker. I simply water it from the bottom by dipping it into a small bowl of water. I also just started using the Dyna-Grow liquid fertilizer sold by Violet Barn and the flowers are a COMPLETELY different color. They were light pink, but now they're all a deep vibrant purple and pink. Usually have 9 to 12 blooms.

Cutie Patootie

This is a cute little plant! I got Galiwinku as a "seller's choice" for my first trailer. I wasn't immediately thrilled and thought, "what a weird name." But I grew to really like it. The foliage on mine is emerald green and makes a great backdrop for the "sprays" of delicate lavender flowers. I found I need to water this one a little more than most, I guess because of the multiple crowns and many blooms. So cute, but I'd love to know how she got that name!

Dainty little gorgeous flowers!

I received this one in one of my orders. It had one very pretty bloom and a very healthy plant, but I still managed to kill it. I so want another, but am a bit afraid to try again. I just love these plants, but I must be killing them with love! I seem to have a bit better luck with the standards.

My first training violet! It's a winner!

Took a chance at growing violets as a hobby again, as a retiree, after over 45 years of NOT having time to do so as a career woman! I ordered some plants from you folks at the Violet Barn a few months back, including the first trailing violet I had ever seen, "Rob's Galiwinku". The plant began blooming about a month ago, and is now completely full of gorgeous little blossoms! It's a HIT, and a wonderful addition to my little collection! Very easy to care for and lovely. Thanks!!! The other plants are thriving as well!
