Midnight Rain

I've got about 20 of my violets in early stages of blooming, and can hardly contain myself. Here is the first one - Midnight Rain Standard from The Violet Barn in Naples, NY. (Standard means this variety will grow to full normal size for the violets we all remember.... about 10-12 inches across in a 4" pot, but can grow up to 24" across if grown in a larger pot, and kept carefully trimmed and the flower buds are trimmed to maintain fewer but larger flowers.

I love The Violet Barn! Haven't been there in years - but love that place, that whole area, in fact.
