    Very nicely bloomed, and excellent leaf color on the plant as well.

    The one violacea I have smells to me like Froot Loops cereal--is this one remotely like that?

    I have a poor sense of smell. To me, the fragrance of this plant is of a very high-end french perfume. Maybe I am just wishing it had that fragrance.

    lja, I see you are in Arkansas. Are you attending the show and meeting this weekend? I understand Tom Larkin is very involved with this show. He is a good guy; I purchase plants from him occasionally.

    There would be no argument from me! Looks like 100% violacea to me!

    I have a bellina that is overpowering at times when it comes to scent. My wife describes it as "eggs frying"!

    I'd pay big money or trade for the french perfumy types!!! Keikis perhaps???!!!!

    GREAT GROWING of a beautiful plant!
