RE: Most wanted violets

Great rachel! I have lots of small plants also so i'm sure we could do a nice trade. Please contact me when the weather is good for you. Here in Louisiana, it's mostly always warm enough to mail. :)

Cajunkisses - I have lots of babies of Majesty and one big Ma's Ching Dynasty. If you like, drop me a note when it warms up and we'll work something out.

Most wanted: Midnight Radiation & L'Heure Bleu

I don't know where you live, but i'm in Louisiana and it's almost always warm here. Our Winters are extremely mild. Would love to work out a trade with you.

Thanks,

My Most Wanted is a very old violet--Plum Tips. It was hybridized by Tinari and available in the 1960s. My hopes are dimming, but I DID see it at a show in Ft Myers FL, in the 1990s. It is a star shaped flower, deep lilac with dark purple tips to the dogwood-type blossoms. I loved it!

RE: Most wanted violets

I don't exactly have a most wanted list, I just buy whatever I fancy at the time...
I like semi-minis and variegated ones, and would like to get some trailers - so I guess I'd be really happy finding a variegated semi/mini trailer, preferably with a blossom color other than pink :-)

I have a long list somewhere at home, but off the top of my head I really want
Fisherman's Paradise
Frozen in Time
Tiger
Powwow
Chantaspring
Lunar Lily White
Irish Flirt

and anything from the Jolly series, Everfloris series and MyViolet series.

Nothing too exotic, just want to round out the collection with a little bit of everything.

This is fun to read. For many years, I wanted Pistachio but it is gone. I'll probably think of something I really want, but the only thing I can't find is Edith V. Peterson. I killed her (it was hard, she was tough).

I wouldn't mind Chantaspring but haven't seen it where I've ordered.

I tossed Melodie Kimi - sorry, but I'm not sure it was blooming true anyway.

I hope you find Plum Tips.

Most Wanted AV's ???... I love them all it's hard for me to choose!
Variegated are "My Most Wanted!"
....Then I see the next AV that is in bloom and It's "My Most Wanted!"
Oh and that one over there is So Beautiful .... It's "My Most Wanted!" ...
Oh and that AV is different - It's "My Most Wanted!"
....sigh....
When it warms up I have several kinds that I would love to exchange leaves for others!
You can view my exchange list to see their names.

HI, Lola,
I sent you an email through the Garden Web as I would like to exchange. Thank you

RE: Most wanted violets

Most wanted? My desires are simple but very specific ... micro mini(s) with heavily white variegated leaves. Couldn't care less about the flowers. (Want them to add some color to my terrariums.) ;)


 o
RE: Most wanted violets

So far the only one I've really been wanting is
Flashy Trail

and perhaps
Chantaspring

I would also like to find Anthoflores Rose again. It was a pink double with girl leaves (Anthoflores calls them "curly") and was a small, neat standard. It grew well. I have leaves to trade or baby plants when it gets warmer.
