Yes they are the same violet.

One name is in Russian, the other in English.

EK-Goluboglazaja Rossia translates as EK-(hyb. prefix) Blue Eyed Russia.

Irina,

Do you know why the Russian varieties always have the hybridizer's initials at the front of the variety name? (I'm assuming that's what it is.) Is this a custom or is it similar to 'Wrangler's' or 'Cajun'? And are there any that do not do this?

Linda -

no, it is kind of a new development and there are several modern Russian hybridizers who do it, but not all.

Cork,

Also, the correct name is the Russian-EK-Goluboglazaja Rossia, not the English translation. Good to know if you decide to show or sell.

Irina,

You are correct but it sure is difficult to get my American tongue around some of these names!!! (Although I am staring to learn a bit of Russian) :)
