Source for Ballet Lisa?

I've been scouring the Web and have contacted one grower in the U.S. who no longer carries it. I'm not ready to go to Australia yet to pick up a plant. Does anyone here grow it? I'd be happy to pay for leaves and postage!

- this AV could be gone forever - since Fay Wagman retired from growing - she was probably the last one to carry this vintage variety.

Your last chance is to get in touch with Barbara Elkin - she maintains the AV most wanted list. if you log in to - and look under publication - the pdf list of most wanted violets has her contact info.

Good Luck
