pretty excited about the leaves I'm getting...

violetta1976(8 Portland OR)September 9, 2007

I won an ebay auction for 2 leaves of each of the following:

Outer Limits 12/17/2005 (Lyndon Lyon Greenhouses/D. Herringshaw) Single-semidouble blue large frilled pansy/pink and white fantasy. Dark green, plain/red back. Large

Dazzling Fantasyland (9521) 12/17/2005 (Lyndon Lyon Greenhouses/P. Sorano) Single-semidouble light pink pansy/blue fantasy, violet-red edge. Dark green, plain/red back. Large

Sinister Shadow (Lyndon Lyon Greenhouses) Deep, dark purple, single and semi-double pansies. This variety is more like the older type of violets. The standard, dark green foliage, is variegated in beige on the leaf edge.Standard.

Sora Zachariah (B. Werness) Light blue semidouble blossoms edged in white and green, over variegated foliage of dark green and white. (User Database)

Sheer Romance (6752) 11/02/1987 (S. Sorano) Double pink star/white edge. Medium green, ovate. Large

Rum Punch (S. Sorano) Semi-double double medium pink star/mauve tips. Dark green. Standard

Sweet Lady Love (LLG)Medium pink, semidouble pansies, with a dainty frilled, thin white edge. Occasionally, green shows up on the top petals. A profuse bloomer! Well shaping, standard foliage of medium green, slightly quilted. Standard.

Silver Smoke (LLG)Clusters upon clusters of the palest shade of lavender, semidouble, pansy shaped blossoms are marked strongly in green on the petal edges, and are produced above medium green, quilted and pointed, lightly wavy show foliage, sporting a silver reverse. Standard.

Alison's Laughter (LLG)Very large, double stars of medium purple, with a thin white outline on very frilled edges. Raspberry fantasy flecks playfully decorate the flower face, and occasionally, blue streaks also join in. The standard foliage is large growing, dark green, with a red reverse, and quilted. Awarded "2nd BEST NEW CULTIVAR", at the 2006 AVSA convention.

Wrangler's Jealous Heart (6225) 05/20/1986 (W. Smith) Double pansy, ruffled/light pink and green edge. Variegated dark green and pink, ruffled, hairy. Large

What's funny is that I had been contemplating placing an order from LLG, and a bunch of those are ones I'd been looking at.

I'm so excited!

Thanks! I have no idea what I'll do with all those plants, but I suppose I have time to figure it out.

Very nice! You'll have a great time and you can always share the babies when you get them. :) It's fun to trade!

Oh, deja vu! Last year at this time I was where you are now, adding to my collection with great joy! Enjoy the process and love the results.

Now the patience comes in...WAITING for the leaves to root, WAITING for the babies to appear, WAITING for them to get big enough to separate and pot. WAITING for flower buds! FUN

Oh good gracious, she sent me EXTRAS. This wonderful lady sent me leaves from 3 other plants, along with all the ones I'd purchased from her. And for a lot of those plants, she gave me 3 leaves, not just 2. Good gracious, I'm going to have plants coming out the wazoo! Another item of interest - somehow I had managed to not notice how many of these are large, not standard. Ack!

I think I'm going to have to commit myself to only keeping one of each. Think I'll be able to do it? ;0)
