RE: Russian violets

Mary Beth,

I know what you mean, they are stunning! Some sources I have found are both retail and e-bay. Lyndon Lyon greenhouses has a few, as does Bluebird Greenhouses. If you go to e-bay, do a search for Russian african violet and some should come up. The only e-bay seller I have bought Russians from is 'aurikab' and she is an awesome shipper. That doesn't mean there aren't others out there, these are just my personal experience.

My cut/paste isn't working, but if you google african violet, both of those greenhouse wevsites will come up.

Good luck, and let us know what you couldn't live without.


RE: Russian violets

Try also Rob's violet at They also have quite a few nice ones.


RE: Russian violets

Yeah, I've gotten at least three russians from Rob's and they're doing great. Very pretty and healthy: Amour Elite, Le Sea of Happiness, and Sagittarius Elite.

I am hoping someone will be able to help me locate a russian av hybrid called Albina. I have searched the catalogs of large growers, such as lyndon lyon etc, but with no luck. If anyone has advice as to where I can get my hands on one I would be very grateful.

RE: Russian violets

You can always try eBay. But this time of year many will not be selling again until Spring because of the cold weather.
