Perfectas flores y fácil crecimiento

Just perfect!

I received mine yesterday and it is just perfect. Blooming, three crowns, incredibly healthy. My species plants had a hard time last year so I’m ready to replace the ones I lost. This is going to be a marvelous trailer.

Very sweet

This is a lovely little trailer. It arrived in bloom a few weeks ago and is still blooming. Perfectly packed with lots of care.

Very long lasting blooms

Upon receipt of my last order, I noticed this one plant had one bloom, and it lasted approximately 3 weeks. If you want a very willing bloomer, a tough plant that always looks neat and tidy, with gorgeous blooms, this clone is highly recommended.

I received this as a freebie several weeks ago. It arrived in bloom and shows no sign of stopping! Thank you, Violet Barn; I could not be happier

Gorgeous little species plant!

This plant has been blooming continuously since receiving it a month ago. It is a graceful, elegant, cheerful and wildflowery little clone that really draws the eye with its simplicity and charm. Interestingly, it doesn’t appear to be a dropper. Each bloom has lasted several weeks for me!

Another delightful old species;

I have racks and racks full of all kinds of violets, but nothing really beats these simple old species or a basic blue violet.

Received in bloom, it's so pretty! I'm looking forward to growing this one in the coming months. Thanks Violet Barn!!

species love Grotei

I have not grown species violets in years and use to have a big collection. This was one of my all time favorites blooming and cascading all the time. I am starting to grow my collection again and very happy to find this clone.

Sweet and simple

This trailer has an old fashioned sweetness with it's simple and classic violet flowers. The leaves seem a little thin but the plant is growing and flowering well. It's one of my favorites.

Patricia Nakao Aug 24 2017, 22:04 PM

Cute as can be

I recently added this little trailer to my collection. She arrived in bloom and healthy as can be carefully nestled in expert packaging, This one will be fun to have around.

Gorgeous plant with profuse blooms

This is a wonderful plant. It blooms constantly, has dense foliage, and very easy to care for. I've had mine for over a year, and enjoy it constantly.

Rae De La Cretaz Jan 23 2016, 16:59 PM

Definitely a favorite...

This gorgeous species never stops blooming. Great trailer! I came with buds, and it hasn't stopped blooming all year long. Highly recommended!

Great trailer

After just over a year my tiny plant is now massive and just had its first major flush of blooms. Very nice plant, easy to grow and forgiving to neglect.

Brian Prazinko Apr 30 2014, 00:50 AM

My first species

This was the first species I purchased in May this year. It started blooming earlier this month and has not stopped! The blooms and plant are absolutely gorgeous!

Still not thriving

While I am very happy with all other violets purchased from the violet barn, this violet is not thriving. I found Rob very helpful when I emailed pictures to inquire how to help this plant, however despite all my efforts this plant is still not happy. I will not purchase this variety again.

S. ionantha grotei silvert

I received a good sized plant in bloom. The foliage was bright and clear and the plant in good health. Being a species, the flowers were blue/lavender and lovely. I'd recommend this plant to anyone.

Vigorous Grower & Bloomer

I received this cutie as a "freebie" with my order. The blooms aren't the most spectacular blooms; medium sized royal purple pansy, despite being plain they are rather cute. But what really won me over is this trailers vigorous growth and hardiness, it just keeps blooming it's little heart out despite being in lower light conditions at the edge of my light stand. This has grown to be one of my favorite plants, the little saintpaulia that could.

S. Grotei Silvert Clone

I purchased this plant some time ago from The Violet Barn. It just took off when I received and has gotten so large, I have had to separate it a couple of times. All if the plants I receive from Rob arrive packaged beautifully and are never damaged. I continue to buy from them because they ship quickly and the plants are always quite large and very healthy.
