Rob's Galiwinku

Average Rating 5 out of 5

Easy to grow and amazing blooms

The first trailer I tried. It is very easy to grow and is nearly constantly blooming. It was frequently on my work desk, so I could enjoy it during the day. I can’t think of anything negative.

Rob's Gallwinku

Excellent condition after arriving in 90°+ weather. Has buds. My first order and I am very pleased. Thank you!

Rebecca Shaw Jul 27 2023, 09:59 AM

Rob Galiwinka Super bloomer!!!

This is one of my favorites or maybe even my favorite blooming violet. Constantly gorgeous with very little effort. Diffused sunlight and occasional food. Love the dramatic color.

Nancy Hawk Jul 17 2023, 10:24 AM

Exceptional Grower and Bloomer

This beauty can’t take a rest! Not only does it bloom non stop, it grows like crazy! Rob, wow. You are good!

Wanda Blue Jun 11 2023, 19:11 PM

Little dude just keeps going

This really is a constant bloomer - it's got so many flowers right now that it obscures the leaves. I always have trouble with miniatures, but this little dude has been very easy.

Angela Chung Jun 09 2023, 23:20 PM

1000 stars!

I received this beauty from my son for Mother's Day, it arrived in PERFECT SHAPE, and Violet Barn has the healthiest violets I've ever received! I will definitely be ordering more from the Violet Barn!! ❤

Rob’s galiwinku

I love this plant. The color is gorgeous. It has bloomed so well that I am getting another on. All the plant from here are wonderful. I am so happy to have discovered them.

Joanne Cawley Apr 26 2023, 10:46 AM

Love my Galliwinku!

This little guy arrived quickly and in great shape with 3 crowns and buds. Delightful flowers which just keep coming. Looking forward to even greater things for him.

Susan Szypszak Jan 02 2023, 14:30 PM

Lovely plant

This was the first trailing violet I have ever ordered and it did not disappoint. From the moment it arrived, already in bloom, it has been a joy to watch. It is a prolific bloomer. I love it.

Roberta Wasson Oct 07 2022, 16:45 PM

Vigorous bloomer

I received this plant as a gift and what a gift it is! It is always in bloom and grows very well (even under occasional neglect). Leaves and cutting root rapidly and bloom readily, you can't go wrong here.

Lovely trailer with lots of blooms!

This little trailer is a great performer producing beautiful blooms constantly.

Christopher Brooks Jul 22 2022, 09:02 AM

Beautiful Rob’s Galiwinku

I cannot emphasize how beautiful this trailer is. A blooms such beautiful pastel violet colors. I actually bought one for my sister and hers are blooming now. She cannot believe the beauty in this plant. I recommend this trailer highly. Beautiful buds! Nancy Frankovich

Nancy Frankovich Apr 22 2022, 15:59 PM

Beautiful blooms

This was a little slow in blooming but within the last few months it has taken off. Many beautiful blooms and there are always new buds waiting to open. Very beautiful.

Susan Mendelsohn Apr 10 2022, 18:16 PM

Lovely shape

I bought this plant a couple of years ago. I love the shape of the plant and the many blooms it produces at once! It’s been awhile, but it’s starting to bloom again! Granted, I’m still a novice and I find all the tips on the website very helpful. Thanks, Violet Barn! Will definitely be a repeat customer!

Clemence Simard Mar 04 2022, 22:43 PM

Love Rob's Galiwinku!

Purchased this in 2018. Almost always in heavy bloom in a northwest facing bow window. Bloom especially heavy in winter. Makes me so happy! Thank you Violet Barn for all the joy!

Beautiful bloomer

Gorgeous when it starts blooming. Well formed and just a stunner. Great trailer.

Ashley Speranzella Oct 18 2021, 00:08 AM

Adorable Rob's Galiwinku

I received this yesterday and, oh my goodness, how precious it is! It is so tiny and yet it's already loaded with flowers and buds. The flowers are a lovely shade of violet and just so pretty! It is such a happy little plant and arrived in perfect condition. Thank you, Violet Barn, for the loving attention your give to your plants. This, and all of the other plants I received, were so lovingly and carefully packed, and they arrived in excellent condition. I'm thrilled!

Suzanne Dolan Oct 08 2021, 16:34 PM

amazing little beauty

go ahead, buy it you will be glad you did. a robust grower and blooms galore, what a treat to see it smiling at me every morning.

Eva Lausier Sep 23 2021, 17:48 PM

prolific and adorable

this lovely plant will be a joy and a great addition to your collection. fast grower and prolific bloomer, i love it and it reproduces well, trying to get grandchildren interested in growing plants, fun for them to see it grow so quickly.

Eva Lausier Sep 03 2021, 15:48 PM

Gorgeous little plant!

Just a lovely little plant! Arrived well packaged and in bloom. I can’t wait to see what it does as it grows.

David Carpenter Aug 11 2021, 12:00 PM

Beckster has a trailer?

I received my 1st order from VB and unboxing was so much fun! I have never grown a trailer African Violet and was hard choosing one. The Rob's Galiwinku I received is a petite plant yet has 2 crowns already, 3 stems and 4 blooms already! The pics do not do this little guy justice. I look forward to it growing big and strong aaaand doing its trailing thing.

Rebecca Acain Aug 02 2021, 23:42 PM

Galliwinku arrived

Blooms already and what a lovely purple that goes well with the leaves. I can’t wait for it to take off. Carol Luckey

Carol Luckey Jul 25 2021, 12:30 PM

Beautiful little trailer!

I got this plant recently, and it came in bloom. I love the flower colors ... pinkish with purple fantasy markings. I am eager to watch it grow.

Emily Forrester Jul 22 2021, 20:00 PM

Lovely plant

This is my first real experience with African violets and this was a great plant to start with. It tolerated a lot and still kept growing. While it took a little while to get the hang of it, it’s just finished up blooming for more than eight months straight. Very pretty blooms.

Margaret Domitrovich Jul 14 2021, 08:41 AM


Rob's Galiwinku is such a pretty little trailer. It is very easy to grow and covers itself in blooms that last and last. I highly recommend this one!

Frances Ring Jul 12 2021, 14:57 PM


This cute purple African violet is putting on quite the show. After a month I transplanted it to a slightly larger pot and it filled out quickly. Tons of blooms! I recommend this beautiful AV. Diane

Diane Farris Jul 11 2021, 10:13 AM

One of my favorites! Lovely foliage with almost constant blooms! You will not be disappointed with this beauty!

Pamela Liberatore May 24 2021, 09:36 AM

A pleasant surprise

This was my "seller's choice trailer" I received in-bloom. I wasn't sure how I felt about fantasy flowers but these little gems are just adorable. Thank you, Violet Barn.

Nicole Hamilton Apr 07 2021, 17:01 PM

Rob’s Galiwinku

What a beautiful trailer! A beautiful blue with some fantasy. A beautiful healthy plant when I received it along with special care when shipped. I recommend this trailer and The Violet Barn highly. Thank you for your healthy plants.

Nancy Frankovich Feb 16 2021, 21:22 PM

The Blooms ❣

Very unusual color to these GORGEOUS BLOOMS- almost like a purplish-pink heavier on the purple. Blue fantasy splashes adds lots of interest. Excellent trailer

Emily Tanner Nov 28 2020, 19:44 PM

Always blooming!

This plant blooms constantly! The colors are amazing and the flowers are so delicate and perfect. Love everything about it!

Caroline Wannamaker Oct 16 2020, 19:38 PM

Wonderful gift

I bought this plant and several others for my aunt after my cousin passed away. I called the Violet Barn to request that the plants were in bloom. They arrived perfectly packed and in bloom. My aunt loved all the plants, especially this trailer. The flowers never seem to stop. I plan on buying one for myself.

Tammy Pyle Sep 19 2020, 22:07 PM

Tough little plant

This has great leaves which still look great even if my care is not always the best . I have noticed it needs more light than most to bloom so keep that in mind . It's a tough little guy .

George Ackerman Aug 13 2020, 02:31 AM

One of my favorite trailers

This plant grows is a great one if you like trailers. It is a faster growing than some I have, and seems to maintain its lovely shape.

Charles Roush Aug 04 2020, 12:49 PM

Great Plants

I ordered this plant and several others at the beginning of the pandemic as I began working at home. The hope was that they would help spruce up my home "office." All the plants are alive and thriving after about 4 months, and several of them are in bloom. By now I have transplanted most of them into larger pots. Very happy with all the plants, and this one in particular.

Tate Tischner Jul 17 2020, 22:15 PM

Beautiful Plants

I wrote a review and forgot to rate. Thanks for beautiful plants.

Dolores Mosher Jun 12 2020, 14:27 PM


I have get to see this plant bloom, so I can't comment on that. But I can't comment on the packaging, etc. My poor plants! I ordered them, then several things happened that prevented my picking them up from the mail room. Between getting locked out of my mail box and corona, they say in the mail box for 2 weeks! I knew they were dead. When I opened the box, they were still alive! All the flower buds and a portion of the leaves were dried up, but they lived! It has been 3 months and they have tripled in size! Can't wait to see these purple flowers on the new buds coming out!

Channelle Norton May 28 2020, 06:54 AM

Gorgeous Trailer Rob’s Galiwinku

Absolutely gorgeous trailer. The blooms are a deep vibrant blue. After 1 month I saw forming of many buds then an explosion of beautiful blossoms! I was so excited and happy! I recommend this trailer! Love it!!

Nancy Frankovich Apr 14 2020, 22:26 PM

The Beginning of my Collection

This one was given to me as a TINY plant a couple weeks ago by a friend. It has been putting on leaves so fast and vigorously, it prompted me to look for more of Rob's violets to buy! So it has been a good ambassador. =)

Erica Humphreys Apr 03 2020, 09:12 AM


This is my first trailer, and I love it. It has adjusted well and is now full of flowers!

Sheila Edwards Mar 28 2020, 12:30 PM

Arrived blooming and looks very cheerful

Gorgeous blooms! For me, looks more like the first photo on left in the description. Was a bit worried because each photo showed a different shade of bloom but mine looks magenta-orchid-purple with one shade darker purple fantasy coloring. Beautiful! Arrived blooming and had many more buds than the other two trailers I ordered. Handled being shipped very well, seemed unperturbed by the process. :) Love it!

E Sasaki Feb 09 2020, 22:43 PM

Beautiful trailer!!

Received this plant earlier this year. Even though it was well packaged, one leaf fell off during shipment. I placed this leaf in soil and a few months later, I have two beautiful violets. Violet Barn always has the best plants, best shipping and best customer service. Rob's Galiwinku is a spectacular violet!

Jason Swiger Oct 07 2019, 12:55 PM


I had no idea trailing violet's existed! This is lovely. I love the way the leaves twist and hang and trail over even though it's still just a baby plant. It's such a young plant, but it's already blooming. I've had a great experience with the Violet Barn and am coming back for more.

Jessica Polak Aug 24 2019, 17:07 PM

So Excited!

I can't wait to receive this beauty! My Mom had a beautiful violet when I was a child. Now that she's passed on, I'll be planting this in the very same pot that she used so I can be reminded of her every time I look at it.

Sue Wells Jul 24 2019, 16:45 PM

Trailing african violet

African violet trail flowers are pretty. Constant bloomer. Thank you

Anonymous Jul 09 2019, 20:59 PM

My first trailing violet

I ordered Rob's Galiwinku and LE Victoria on June 19th. The plants arrived in great condition although a leaf broke off the LE Victoria. It was cut so short that I thought I won't be able to plant it. Then, I found Rob's comment in one for their FAQ section that "you can plant the leaf w/o the petiole". So, i did! I might have more LE Victoria plant in the coming months. LOL Also, thank you for the free Rob's Humpty Doo! It is so cute with those little blooms. I am so hooked into African Violets now that for my birthday my husband bought me books on how to grow African Violets :) Thank you Violet Barn.

Maria Oprisko Jul 01 2019, 10:04 AM

Oh my goodness,,,

I placed my first order for 11 violets...I was very nervous about the shipment process. They came and I wasn't home and the postman stuffed (and I mean crammed) the box into my mailbox upside down. I had to get a knife and cut the box to get it out of my mailbox. I didn't hold out much hope at that point. However, you packed my order so well that not one violet was damaged, 2 were actually blooming. The violets were not even that dry. Now 6 days later 4 more are blooming! Can't wait to order more. Thank you so much.

Jeanette Benak Jun 25 2019, 13:36 PM

Rob's Galiwinku

These blooms are beautiful. They are purple-ish marbled with blue in my conditions. This plant has produced some lovely photos already (if I could upload to go with the review I would). I didn't know fantasy could look so exquisite.

Rachel Witmer Jun 23 2019, 14:07 PM

AMAZING! I’m back for more!

I made my first violetbarn order a few months ago and included this plant. It’s been so great I’m buying one for my mom! All the plants came wonderfully packaged and healthy but this one in particular has just been an amazing plant

Melanie Jones May 17 2019, 09:39 AM


This violet is gorgeous and easy to grow. Always blooming and likes lots of water which is good for me. Doesn't take up a lot of space and will be a pleasure to anyone who enjoys African violets.

Michael Baker Apr 19 2019, 08:44 AM

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.

John Scott Nov 15 2018, 13:13 PM

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!

Anonymous Sep 10 2018, 19:46 PM


I absolutely love this beautiful and easy to grow little trailer! Plants from Violet Barn are always well packed and arrive in perfect condition.

Pat Graham Sep 05 2018, 20:53 PM

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.

Sandra Willis Aug 20 2018, 21:52 PM

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!

Patricia Smith Aug 13 2018, 15:00 PM

A winner for a beginner!

Had never grown a trailing violet before ordering this cutie! My wife sent a photo of this prolific and easy bloomer, who thought it was so delightful that we ordered one (with appropriate supplies) for her as a birthday gift. It’s growing great and blooming well for her, and remains one of our all-time favorites.

DAN R STENGLE Jun 16 2018, 11:23 AM

Love it so far!

What a gorgeous little plant! It has so many crowns and is forming so many buds. I can’t wait till this one grows up!

Corey Thompson May 24 2018, 22:56 PM

Just so happy!

The violet is so beautiful! Every time i look at it My spirits lift. It has been in constant bloom since 2 weeks after delivery in 2/2018

Karen Stolar May 21 2018, 19:32 PM

Makes me Happy!

These little jewels just make me smile every time I look at them on my kitchen window sill. I always keep several extras on hand, they make the perfect last minute gift. Everyone who gets them as a gift are thrilled, which again makes me happy.

Anonymous Apr 14 2018, 19:08 PM

Constant bloomer

I lovingly gave my little violet to my daughter. Hers is constantly blooming. I need to replace my empty spot so, I'm buying 2 more. I'm going to try planting 2 together.

Gail Feb 03 2018, 17:33 PM

Rob's Galiwinku

Wonderful little plant, I've only had it a little over a month and it's already starting to bloom. Good choice!

Barbara Paige Jan 09 2018, 10:19 AM

Lovely Plant!

I am ordering another one of these for a gift. I love trailing violets and The Violet Barn does a terrific job.

Karen Hood Oct 15 2017, 01:13 AM

My new favorite! Love it!

It had a small bud on it when I received it, ( that I thought was great) and in just over 2 and 1/2 months later I lost count at over 50 sweet blossoms! I wish I could add a photo here so you could see how pretty it is. Love the size and my first semi-miniature.

Karen Folsom Aug 29 2017, 20:26 PM

4 Years

I bought this feisty little plant from here 4 years ago and it's still kicking. It has survived my care as a novice African Violet caretaker as well as my mother care. It can bounce back after any abuse or neglect you may give it. Great trailing AV!

Kimberly Hope Aug 02 2017, 22:15 PM

Very pretty plant

Got this little plant in April. Love it. Has bloomed since it arrived. Healthy, very pretty.

Judy Britton Jun 27 2016, 12:27 PM

This is my favorite ROB'S TRAILER... SO FAR!

I have several of Rob's trailing hybrids, and of the ones I own, so far, this is my favorite one. I love the deep color and the plant has grown so healthily. I'm a big fan of the trailers. I just love their willy nilly way of growing crowns and spreading out. This plant is fantastic, it's been easy to grow and I just adore the blooms. It frequently sits in my kitchen window when I'm busy in there, just so I can see the pretty flowers while I'm working. Anyone will be happy with this plant!

Jennifer Less May 27 2016, 10:03 AM

Hearty Plant

Plant arrived in bloom and in great shape. I have not treated it kindly since arrival and yet it continues to bloom!

Anthony Elmore May 20 2016, 03:56 AM

pink not purple

I received this about 6 weeks ago. This is N MN and the weather was cold. All the plants were very healthy and in great shape. They have all began to bloom after about 4 weeks. Galiwinku is described as purple but my flowers are pink? Oh well...it is still a beautiful little violet

Dan Findley Apr 21 2016, 22:03 PM

love this one!

I ordered this Oct., 2015. It has bloomed twice now and it is covered in great flowers. My little plants arrived perfectly and have all thrived. Can't recommend it enough.

Suzann Podjasek Apr 04 2016, 15:46 PM

Wonderful little bloomer

This is a beautiful little flower. It's blooms easily and a lot, is very happy with little care. I've had it well over a year, and I'm very happy.

Rae De La Cretaz Jan 23 2016, 16:55 PM

Robs Galiwinku

Arrived blooming and hasn't stopped blooming since. Gorgeous little plant. Fast grower. Out of all my violets this one gets the most comments from visitors.

Julie Thomas Jan 07 2016, 11:01 AM

Rob's Galiwinku

I love this plant! Beautiful color and lots of blooms. I had to wait about 5 months for it to bloom but it was worth it.

Linda Morris Mar 25 2015, 13:07 PM

Robs galiwinku

Has bloomed constantly since it arrived, wonderful performance!

Kathy Pace Mar 10 2015, 09:54 AM

Added 6 new mini violets to my collection

Galiwinku, Cool fruit, Cirelda, Dandy lion, and Gum bubble all arrived in great shape and nice plants. The two trailers, Galiwinku and Cirelda, were especially full plants and are growing rapidly already.

mark woods Jan 09 2015, 13:07 PM

Great bloomer

Blooms profusely, a beautiful little plant. Good show plant, it's form is perfect with little grooming.

Lona Pidanick Sep 05 2014, 23:23 PM

unstoppable bloomer

Highest performance with lowest maintenance!

Motoko Yamakawa Apr 22 2014, 16:25 PM

Great Color

Almost always in bloom with very nice, rich color. The dark blue fantasy really makes them pop! Can't wait for this one to get bigger!

Anonymous Apr 21 2014, 00:36 AM

Prolific trailer

I let this one bloom while it was still in a 2.5" pot, and it was amazing. I usually remove buds until the plant is more mature, but I was curious to see how this one would do. It was amazing! I have since repotted it to a 3.5" pot, and I'm looking forward to it growing and producing again.

Mary Kathryn WILSON Apr 12 2014, 14:29 PM

Easy to Grow!

This is my first trailing African Violet and I'm hooked. It's super easy to grow with beautiful purple blooms. It blooms early and constant. Grows very fast!

Kimberly Hope Mar 06 2014, 15:05 PM

Great plant for beginners! !

So easy to grow. A heathy plant that was shipped with an extreme amount of care.

Kimberly Hope Sep 19 2013, 22:12 PM

Wonderful choice!!

Wonderful choice!! I had never grown a trailing African Violet before but decided to try....so easy, just feed and water - they do the rest. It never changed in shape, kept growing and it is so healthy.

Jan McRevey Aug 27 2013, 19:01 PM

great plant!

I had ordered a lot of plants here This ones my fav. Its grown so nice and full and blooms lots. I love these violets and anyone that comes over cant believe how pretty they ALL are!

Thomas Sabo Aug 24 2013, 19:06 PM

Extremely healthy plants

I ordered 5 trailers (seller's choice). They all were very helthy upon arrival and most had buds. In the month or so I've owned the plants they have almost doubled in size. Rob's Galiwinku has a nice green color to the leaves with reddish stems which are attractive. The overall shape of the plant is great and it has many blossoms ready to pop!

Sally Mammen Oct 19 2012, 13:25 PM


This is such an easy plant to grow and a good bloomer. One of my all time favorite violets.

Peggy Sep 01 2012, 00:19 AM

What a Great Plant

My Rob's Galiwinku is so full of blooms, and many more on the way. The most precious color. She is going to be a great conversation piece.

Raina Jul 20 2012, 15:33 PM

Rob's Galiwinku is a dream to grow!

Just a marvelous grower - ideal for novices and experts alike. Mine blooms constantly, even when I fail to groom it as often as I should.
