WANTED: My Very First Chimera

I am so curious about what I have been reading about this plant. If anyone has a few leaves, cutting or what have you, I would very much like to make a trade. I have other AV's, varigated mini, varigated standards, mini trailer and other plants such as: Panda Plant, Snake Plant, Hoya, Lipstick Vine, etc. that I can take leaves or cutting from for you. I will be putting up a list as soon as I figure out how to do it. I'm a newbie here!! Thanks for your time, Dar S.

Um, Dar, chimeras are a type of AV; some kind of genetic thingy. There are many varieties of chimeras. Below is a link to Rob's Violet Barn section on chimeras, so you can see.

Oh. I don't actually have any, myself. Sorry. Hope I was at least a little helpful. Or annoying, whatever. Never mind.

Hi, I grow chimeras, and have several suckers right now. I would be willing to trade for named daylillies or iris. For the record, you cannot propagate a chimera by leaf, it has to be sucker only, therefore you don't see them as much as the regular avs.
