Bristol's Cat Dance

Average Rating 5 out of 5

Constantly Blooming Beauty

I've had mine for a year now and once established has no less than 4 blooms. Right now she has about 8. She was my first strep.

A Type of Plant I Never Knew I Needed in My Life

After seeing the lovely photos of various streptocarpus, and reading the reviews, I knew I had to add several to my growing collection of lovelies from Violet Barn. Bristol's Cat Dance arrived in wonderful condition. The long, oval-shaped leaves are beautiful. I am very excited and patiently waiting until she begins to flower.

Non-stop bloomer

This is my favorite streptocarpus so far. It has bloomed non-stop for many months and the blooms just keep coming. Such a cheerful plant!

Amazing plant!!!

I have Bristol's Cat Dance since the last year along with other two Streptocarpus plants. I am absolutely in love with these plants!!! They are nonstop bloomers and it is very easy to take care of them. Can't wait to get more of streptocarpus plants and watch them bloom!!!

Nice plant!

I really like this plant because it is a really good grower and bloomer!

Good Bloomer

I have had this strep for at least 4 years now and it is blooming right now. It has over 20 blossoms and is just absolutely lovely. It also is a good seed parent if anyone is interested hybridizing streps.

Can't wait!

I purchased Cat Dance along with 3 other streptocarpus as my introduction to this beautiful plant variety. Although it hasn't bloomed yet, it arrived healthy and is settling in well. It looks like it's starting to grow its first bud and I can't wait to see blooms!

2 years ago I got some streps from Violet Barn. A short while back I gave away my cat dance (big mistake). I miss my kitties so it is time to reorder and as long as I’m ordering I just have to get a few new varieties. Streps are not available locally so mail order is it. Streps from violet barn come so healthy and vibrant it’s the only place I will order from.

Non stop blooms

This wonderful strep blooms non stop for me, on a north window in the Midwest, and every so often, a little under watered. I couldn’t be happier! It has beautiful blooms, that last a long time too

Quick blooming!

I ordered several streps and this one was the only one that seemed to get a little sad from the stress of shipping (it's otherwise firm leaves flopped within 2 days of arrival) so I relegated it to a window that gets less sun than the others to give it a chance to slowly come up to speed. It perked up, but I forgot to move it back with the others. Still, within 2 weeks it had decided it was time to bloom and has been putting out long lasting flowers for a solid month now... I love the detail in the purple bottom lip. It's beautiful and hardy, a combinatipn that can't be beat!

Joy of Anticipation

This is my first Streptocarpus, selected with care after reading the glowing reviews which convinced me that Bristol’s Cat Dance would be a safe introduction to the family. The plant arrived with several healthy leaves and a flower bud. I initially feared the plant was struggling when its largest leaf began drooping over the pot’s rim. But the stem remains rigid and the leaf healthy so I’m guessing this pendant growth is natural. Waiting for the bud to open and hoping this newcomer lives up to the positive brouhaha!

This was given to us as a gift. It has developed beautiful, bold and yet delicate blooms with a stunning color, and I’ve never seen a strep with more blooms on one plant!

Bright Spot on the Shelves...

One of my favorite Bristol's. Once wanted to get more leaves and it was hard to keep the buds off. LOVE this one!

Lovely and hardy

Bristol' s Cat Dance was one of my first streps. It survived beautifully my beginner care as well as "attention" from my dog, my cat and my (at the time) 5-year-old. Even a little battered, it still bloomed a few times that first season. Today, it is thriving and blooming bountifully and remains a favorite of both my son and myself.

Quick Bloomer!

Plant arrived with bud. It hasn't stopped blooming! BEAUTIFUL!

Julia Gunderson Jul 15 2017, 13:07 PM

An absolutely stunning Streptocarpus!

One of my first- of nearly 100 now- and still a top favorite! With a constant multitude of vivid blooms- and a fun name!!- it is always a big stand out in my young Strep Collection. Love it! ❤️

Janet Brooks Jul 10 2017, 12:09 PM

Each and every year, always perfect.

Each spring I order a few new streptocarpus to add to my collection. I am always so impressed with the care given to the little plants. Today my latest order arrived. Meticulously wrapped and packed they arrived in perfect condition. One had a flower bud and another was in bloom. Such healthy plants, thank you.

Cat Dance is a winner!

I bought this plant from Violet Barn a number of years ago. It is one of my favorites (and I have 75+ streps). Always in bloom and the foliage is very well behaved. A must have!

Terri Vicenzi Mar 02 2016, 13:41 PM

Beautiful blooms

This wonderful plant is nearly always covered in blooms. Easily grown. One of my favorites!

Jodi Murphy May 16 2015, 22:15 PM

Already in Flower

Healthy young plant, very well packed! Several leaves, at least two flower stalks coming up on arrival. Held shipment as requested until date I specified. Thank you!

Julie Ament Oct 11 2014, 12:01 PM

excellant plant

Arrived ready to bloom and has bloomed ever since for over a year. Very pretty velvety flower.

Julie Ament Oct 11 2014, 11:51 AM


I was so pleased when I first received this plant, but now I am astounded! I have only had it about 4 months, but right now it has 10 stalks all flowering at once! The plant is healthy and attractive! All I did was put it in a north window and have watered once a week. No fertilizer necessary for this beauty! I will definitely be a repeat customer!

Joseph Maxwell Mar 28 2014, 10:44 AM

Awesome plant

Flowers all the time in splendid color. Make sure to make room for it as the leaves get quite large.

T Persinger Sep 17 2011, 23:21 PM

beautiful plant!

I was a bit concerned when this slightly taller, more spead plant with "happy faces" began to bloom, because of my limited space. Make room for Cat Dance! The slightly taller, more airy blooms are captivating and blend well with other Streptocarpus and violets. You'll love this one. Easy, good bloomer.

Dorothy Cate Aug 23 2011, 02:56 AM

Cat Dance

I got this plant on my last shipment and it was just ready to bloom. This is a very pretty plant. Buy it you won't be disapointed.

What a Show-Off!

Bristol's Cat Dance arrived and within days it's first bloom appeared - a beautiful purplish blue flower with white trim. Then it promptly had another bloom and another and you get the picture...it is just such a show-off with all its beautiful flowers.
