I've been scouring the Web and have contacted one grower in the U.S. who no longer carries it. I'm not ready to go to Australia yet to pick up a plant. Does anyone here grow it? I'd be happy to pay for leaves and postage!

- this AV could be gone forever - since Fay Wagman retired from growing - she was probably the last one to carry this vintage variety.

Your last chance is to get in touch with Barbara Elkin - she maintains the AV most wanted list. if you log in to - and look under publication - the pdf list of most wanted violets has her contact info.

Good Luck
