two new violets:

BlondieJanMarch 5, 2013

Here are two new violets I bought yesterday. The lavendar with speckles I bought from Walmart. It was on the bottom shelf at the back, so no leaves were missing. I bought the other one at Meijer's grocery store. It was the last one of variegated leaves, and has a pink semidouble blossom. That one had leaves missing from one side of the plant. Wonder if someone just took a few to start? They appear to be healthy... (sorry I got the pink one sideways!).

Very lovely. It's hard for me to find nice av's at Wal-Mart. I never seem to get there before the poor plants have suffered.

Your speckled lavender plant looks like Optimara's Rhapsodie Michelle. It's my favorite variety.

I think Michelle is a good guess for the lavender plant. Its possible the variegated one may be Optimara Romance. Both are very nice.
