Rain Man

This a pretty accurate picture of its color. Lovely blooms, and seems floriferous in my growing conditions at least.

I am not familiar with this violet - this is one beautiful and well grown plant. I grew a registered 'Rain Man' - which was a LARGE variety with dark blue star flowers with a wide geneva edge- according to the description - even white-green edge. Your edging is raspberry - which is absolutely cool - but not to the description.

Hmmm, interesting. Now I'm hopeful the "real" Rain Man is still in my collection - one of the as yet to bloom noids or perhaps another incorrectly labeled plant. Thanks for the info, won't be the first time I've gotten a "surprise"!
