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.

Thanks for the info...I'll look those two named violets up to see if those are the ones!
