Most wanted violets

rachelcharlieDecember 30, 2007

Hello everyone! I was just wondering what violets were on everyoneÂs most wanted list. I know there are so many on mine!! But at the top of my list are mas toxic spill and seafoam. So lets hear yours! And If anyone has someone elseÂs most wanted violet maybe an exchange could be arranged!

I have a couple of rooted Seafoam leaves that are just beginning to put up some babes. Check with me in the spring. I have a longggg list of ones I'd like to get a start of.

Great rachel! I have lots of small plants also so i'm sure we could do a nice trade. Please contact me when the weather is good for you. Here in Louisiana, it's mostly always warm enough to mail. :)

My Most Wanted is a very old violet--Plum Tips. It was hybridized by Tinari and available in the 1960s. My hopes are dimming, but I DID see it at a show in Ft Myers FL, in the 1990s. It is a star shaped flower, deep lilac with dark purple tips to the dogwood-type blossoms. I loved it!

I don't exactly have a most wanted list, I just buy whatever I fancy at the time...
I like semi-minis and variegated ones, and would like to get some trailers - so I guess I'd be really happy finding a variegated semi/mini trailer, preferably with a blossom color other than pink :-)

I have a long list somewhere at home, but off the top of my head I really want
Fisherman's Paradise
Frozen in Time
Lunar Lily White
Irish Flirt

and anything from the Jolly series, Everfloris series and MyViolet series.

Nothing too exotic, just want to round out the collection with a little bit of everything.

This is fun to read. For many years, I wanted Pistachio but it is gone. I'll probably think of something I really want, but the only thing I can't find is Edith V. Peterson. I killed her (it was hard, she was tough).

I wouldn't mind Chantaspring but haven't seen it where I've ordered.

I tossed Melodie Kimi - sorry, but I'm not sure it was blooming true anyway.

I hope you find Plum Tips.

Most Wanted AV's ???... I love them all it's hard for me to choose!
Variegated are "My Most Wanted!"
....Then I see the next AV that is in bloom and It's "My Most Wanted!"
Oh and that one over there is So Beautiful .... It's "My Most Wanted!" ...
Oh and that AV is different - It's "My Most Wanted!"
When it warms up I have several kinds that I would love to exchange leaves for others!
You can view my exchange list to see their names.

Most wanted? My desires are simple but very specific ... micro mini(s) with heavily white variegated leaves. Couldn't care less about the flowers. (Want them to add some color to my terrariums.) ;)

So far the only one I've really been wanting is
Flashy Trail

and perhaps

I would also like to find Anthoflores Rose again. It was a pink double with girl leaves (Anthoflores calls them "curly") and was a small, neat standard. It grew well. I have leaves to trade or baby plants when it gets warmer.
