    It is pretty. I have some wild violets and had one African Violet, but sadly, a mouse ate the roots and killed it. I do plan to get some more at some point. Lots of people around here grow them.

    cheers,

    A mouse ate it?? Oh my!! well, I got this one on line (it was just a leaf) , there are lots of really exotic ones for you to choose from after you get a cat to patrol your plants!
