Beautiful and thriving

Beautiful and easy to grow. Blooms all the time. It makes me happy each day to see it's pretty flowers. Thank you for a wonderful plant!

The best!

This trailer has been thriving and has grown into a lovely, large, trailing plant. Beautiful!

Mary Kathryn WILSON Oct 13 2022, 15:09 PM

Very Happy

Rob's Lilli Pilli arrived in excellent shape. I gave a touch of sunburn to a few leaves. Once I adjusted the lighting, it has been growing wonderfully. Very happy with this plant.

Arrived healthy and blooming

Arrived full of blooms and very healthy looking. I can't wait for it to fill out.

Lovely Little Plant

I grew this Violet many years ago. It was always one of my favorites. Going to grow it again!

Lovely little plant

I truly love this little violet. It arrived in great conditions, and it started blooming pretty quickly.

Arianna Crouse Sep 01 2021, 21:57 PM

Beautiful blooms!

This was my first ever trailer and I’ve got to say it’s beautiful and forgiving. Perfect for a beginner like me. Grew quickly and once the buds started coming this cutie really took off. Highly recommend!

Ashley Speranzella Jun 20 2021, 21:31 PM


My mother collects everything with violets. Ordering these for her for Mother’s Day! Can’t wait to give them to her.

Rob’s Fiddle Faddle and Rob’s Match Point

This are my first mini African Violets and they are wonderful. They arrived in a timely manner, carefully packed and in great shape. I have had them for about 2 weeks and they are growing faster than I expected. The Match Point has lovely dark green leaves and the Fiddle Faddle has light green leaves. I am looking forward to their blooming. I have already placed a second order.

About the best fantasy trailer there is.

Lovely Lilli!

This is one of my favorite trailing violets! Thank you Rob for this lovely delight! I am ordering 2 more because my garden room needs more beautiful flowers. This plant is very easy to grow and always seem to have blooms. I love the colors of the flowers and how the flowers have speckles of various accent purple colors and the sweet pansy shape always charms me.

Happy Lilli Pilli

I have had this lovely trailer for 4 months. It is one of my happiest African Violets and always seems to have blooms. Initially it arrived as a healthy start and grew into a lovely mound of color. It is one of my favorites!

Barbara Farrington Aug 13 2020, 00:43 AM

Not sure was it my Pollyanna syndrome.....

3rd attempt to post a review. The 4 plants I ordered arrived about 22 days ago. One was not looking real happy but I'm an eternal optimism and thought -they will be fine. Now that I read "...inform us within 72 hours of receiving order. Any damage due to shipment will be evident within a day or two." I realize I should have called sooner because the second plant was beginning to not look happy either. Not giving up I thought -they will be just fine. My granddaughter was so disappointed about her "pretty flowers" ... that sad little face ... and her I am, again. I'm going to try once more and hope (there's that Pollyanna syndrome at work again) for a better outcome. However, this time I will be much more aware and skeptical.

Not sure was it my Pollyanna syndrome.....

I forgot to check the stars ... and I can't find my review ... is it here?

michele scott Aug 08 2020, 02:36 AM

Love her!

One of my favorites! Easy bloomer and always brings me a smile! Bloomed within several weeks of receiving. Grows fairly quickly and flowers easily.

Rib's Lilli Pilli

Frist of all, I woyld like to say that I have never raised a violet myself but they are one of my very favorite flowers! I now care for my mother who has always had beautiful violets in her home. I've been to the Violet Barn website so many times to read about all the flowers they have. So, this little baby was one of the 5 trailers I purchased and FELL IN LOVE with it! Already such tiny little blooms on it. Now I am definitely HOOKED on violets. You've made a true, loyal customer. Thank you so very much!

Debra Stiles Apr 09 2020, 12:06 PM

Beautiful Violet

This is my first trailing violet...it is beautiful, easy to care for, and fast growing! I'm ordering another trailing violet today.

Anonymous Jan 30 2020, 13:24 PM

Healthy looking trailer

I received this as my freebie and I can't wait for it to bloom. It was larger than I expected and looks super healthy. Another great plant from Violet Barn!

Kim Lykins Dec 03 2019, 23:59 PM

Lots of blooms!

I've had my Rob's Lilli Pilli for about a month now. It was loaded with buds when I received it - now it has a flush of beautiful shimmering blooms. I was hesitant to get miniature AVs but am finding myself drawn more and more to their tiny explosion of color. Such an exquisite display.

Deborah Upton Oct 29 2019, 01:25 AM

Easy and beautiful

I am new to violets and this is my first trailer. I ordered this one because of its beautiful bloom and light green foliage. It is definitely easy to grow and is still doing well for me 4 months later. I will be buying more trailing varieties in the future.

Anonymous Sep 17 2019, 09:56 AM

Nice healthy little guy

This little one is my freebie, what a great choice they made for me, I am loving the mini's and semi mini's a lot so this cutie will work well with the rest, can't wait for blooms.

Nancy Breen May 24 2019, 15:31 PM

Rob's Lilli Pilli

Charming little trailer that blooms profusely. An easy to grow trailer with beautiful fantasy blooms!

Cheryl Meyer Sep 13 2018, 03:56 AM

Such a great little violet

I grew my original plants from a leaf. They started blooming, along with Rob's Vanilla Trail, when they were tiny and very seldom stop. This is an easy to grow and very floriferous violet!

Dorothy Freier Jul 01 2018, 14:45 PM

Tiny Lilli Pilli

It has not stopped blooming. Slow growing but constant bloomer. He seems happy wherever I put him.

Maxine Keiley Jun 26 2018, 01:49 AM

Great bloomer, easy to grow

Really pretty flowers, really easy to grow. Recommended!

Florence Lu Jun 24 2018, 13:13 PM

Another masterpiece!!!

I love all of Rob’s trailers. They are all very easy growers and bloomers. That said, Lilli Pilli appears to be particularly vigorous. I just received it two weeks ago and it has already doubled in size!!!

Corey Thompson Jun 18 2018, 20:13 PM

Rob’s Lilli Pilli

I love Rob’s trailers. They naturally trail and always have plenty of flowers. I am buying a second one to give as a gift.

Cindy Chrisos Jun 03 2018, 21:02 PM

Robs Lilli Pilli

This is one sweetheart of a plant that was purchased last year. It has beautiful little flowers and blooms constantly. It has now grown to a point that it is starting to trail. I was a novice when I first ordered the special 5 plants and this was among them. I highly recommend this little gem. I wick my plants and it seems to be working well.

Anonymous Apr 08 2018, 19:09 PM

Blooming like crazy!

I bought this last fall. It went dormant for awhile, but now has all sorts of blooms! I think there are almost as many blooms as there are leaves. They look just like the picture (in fact, the entire plant looks just like the picture). I love the combination of lavender and dark blue fantasy markings. It seems to be a pretty easy plant to grow.

Margaret siirila Apr 15 2017, 14:20 PM

Quick grower

I love this plant. It is a very quick grower and is always blooming! The pretty purple/pink flowers are everywhere. Always brings a smile to my face.

Jannine Oates Dec 15 2016, 11:59 AM

Beautiful plant

I've had this plant for about four years and it's always blooming. I love it because it tends to change colors slightly throughout the changing seasons. The blooms are always uniform and well sized in comparison to the plant.

Virginia Dec 03 2016, 16:56 PM

Always a Favorite

I love all of Rob's trailers. It would be hard to pick only one. Lilli Pilli is definitely in my top few. I adore the delicate little blooms and it just keeps blooming and blooming.

Sue Oct 17 2016, 16:22 PM

Ideal plant!

Super easy, always covered in pretty blooms. If you're thinking of trying a trailer, this is a great choice.

Cheryl Sep 17 2016, 10:59 AM

Another great trailer of Rob's!

This one just came into bloom for me recently and I think it's really sweet! Lighter lilac pansy shaped flowers with darker fantasy. I was very delighted when the first blooms opened and I fell in love with it. Right up at the top of my list with my favorite Rob's hybrids. So happy with it!

Jennifer Less May 27 2016, 10:06 AM

Always perfect!

I've grown this for many years and it's a great performer. I wouldn't want to be without it!

Debra palmer Sep 17 2015, 22:10 PM

really is always in bloom

I got this plant in May and I don't think it has stopped blooming. The flowers are very pretty and true to the picture. It just seems to be a happy plant!

Margaret siirila Aug 20 2015, 18:26 PM

Robs Lilli Pilli

I've grown Lilli Pilli for years. It is a well shaped trailer, and rarely stops blooming. I've tried other growers' trailers, but always keep Lilli Pilli on my shelf.

Lenore English May 07 2015, 06:38 AM

True love!

Such a gorgeous plant with tons of blooms! My favorite.

Mara Thomas Feb 18 2015, 00:30 AM

So pretty!

I saw this plant at a show and I was in love! Gorgeous lilac colored blooms. I can't wait to get mine.

Mara Thomas Nov 21 2014, 14:54 PM

Wonderful Little Plant!

I have ordered many plants from the Violet Barn and this one is always in boom. I highly recommend it !

James Hood Oct 25 2014, 21:44 PM

Robs Lilli Pilli

My favorite of all trailers that I grew years ago. Was always in bloom, easy to care for, and so enjoyable to see. I highly recommend Rob's Lilli Pilli trailer.

Rob's Lilli Pilli

You really can't go wrong with a Rob's trailer. This one is easy to grow, always has a profusion of flowers and just seems happy all the time. I highly recommend it. Lona J. Pidanick

Constant Bloomer

Great Trailer! Always in bloom! Love all my plants from Violet Barn, Thanks!

Lynda Snyder May 17 2014, 17:48 PM

Great trailer

Grows itself and is almost never without blooms. Trails beautifully.

Robs Lilli Pilli

Love this trailer fast growing flowers are so pretty!

Tiffany Bauer Oct 20 2013, 21:17 PM

Constant bloomer and grower

I love this cute plant, my plant has doubled in size and is constantly in bloom after only a few months. I planted it in a large terrarium and it has nearly filled it up.

Roy Blakely Sep 04 2013, 14:40 PM

tough little guy

This plant survived my mother while I was on vacation when many other plants died. Increadibly tolerant. Still looks great and blooms regularly.

Sheena Jul 21 2013, 19:14 PM

Fantastic little trailer!

This was my very first trailer and I couldn't have made a better choice! It is spilling over the edge of its 4 inch Oyama pot and has been blooming constantly for almost 6 months. I have most of my violets growing under lights, but this little guy sits on a bookcase by an east facing window and looks wonderful.

Linda May 18 2013, 23:54 PM

Gorgeous little plant

Purchased the plant in September 2012 - it is in full bloom and looks absolutely lovely! I was very impressed with how well all my plants were packaged. All arrived in perfect condition!

Alba Sequeira Apr 30 2013, 23:50 PM

One of my favorites

I am a huge fan of Rob's trailers. Lilli Pilli is one of my favorites. It grows on my windowsill, sometimes experiencing periods of neglect. Despite that, it is usually in bloom. I am planning to buy one for a friend.

Susan Frumerie Feb 10 2013, 13:59 PM

Prolific Bloomer

My first experience with a semi-miniature trailer has sold me on them. Rob's Lilli Pilli is a prolific bloomer with blooms that are approximately the size of its leaves.The one little plant that I started with 6 months ago is spilling over the sides of its 4 inch pot. I am sold on The Violet Barn!

Kris Wieland Jun 03 2012, 19:27 PM


A really beautiful care-free violet. It always looks good and the blooms stay fresh for a long time, so it's always lookin' pretty.

Sheena Becker May 20 2012, 03:19 AM

Highly recommended!

This is a wonderful plant to grow. It shapes nicely for me and blooms all the time. I grow it on the top shelf under one WS tube and one cool tube. If you are new to trailing violets, this is a great first for anyone to grow.

Gayle Coble Apr 19 2012, 14:09 PM


This plant just arrived. I am so impressed.It is a very strong looking plant with 18 leaves and 8 blooms , ready to pop open!

Priscilla Varney Mar 30 2012, 21:44 PM

Beautiful Little Trailer

Rob's Lilly Pilli is a beautiful little trailer that is constantly in bloom. It has a great form and produces new plantlets rapidly. It is a real gem to add to any collection.

Zoraida Feb 01 2012, 16:57 PM

Robs Lilli Pilli

I adore this beautiful trailer. There are always flowers of the prettiest shade of soft purple with darker streaks or spots. I have several now since I have taken starts off my first plant. I have placed the new plants in locations where I can enjoy watching the blooms. I also give these as gift plants since they are so easy to grow and bloom well.

Sandi Jan 17 2012, 17:27 PM

Violet Growers Dream

This plant was a gift to my grandmother who has been growing violets for over 45 years. She loves this plant. The blooms are all over and the plant trails very nicely.

Monique White Sep 11 2011, 16:10 PM

Lovely Lilli

Lilli Pilli is a lovely trailer; easy to care for and flowers continuously. You can't really tell from the photo but the flowers have an iridescent hue to them, making them even more beautiful in person.

Ann Pearsall Aug 28 2011, 14:44 PM

Happy little bloomer

When I received this little jem it was loaded with blooms. The blooms were bigger than the leaves. Right away it was my favorite. This little plant was well worth it.

Wynette Hendrix Jul 12 2011, 15:36 PM

lilli pilli

I just received my box of violets. They arrived in beautiful condition. I am most impressed by the quality of the plants. I ordered the miniture trailing violet Lilli Pilli. It already has blooms on it. The blooms are exactly as pictured. It arrived as did the others just as described. I am 110% happy!!

sue Firmin Jun 19 2011, 19:38 PM

This one got me addicted!

I am so happy i got this little gem!Its already covered with beautiful blossoms. I highly recommend this one.

Bonnie Bruman Jun 12 2011, 10:21 AM

Good Bloomer

Very cute! Good bloomer with small, green leaves. I love this one!

Kathleen Hodge May 29 2011, 18:11 PM


When I bought this little trailer last fall, the description said it was easy to grow. This little plant does not quit blooming. I try to give it a "rest " by debudding it and low and behold it comes back with twice as many blooms. I've even taken this little trailer to work just to show it off. I would recommend Rob's Lilli Pilli to anyone who has never grown a trailing violet before. Thank You.
