I went to local nursery for grass seed and cactus potting mix;
also brought home this new african violet
I think it's purple is more purple than the first purple one I have- and the flowers have white edges, and its leaves are much darker and rounder than any of my current violets. Very bad photo to compare:
The new violet isn't really as large as my older, pink one- I was just holding it closer to the camera. Of course, this one didn't have a name on the label. Oh well. I really like the difference of the darker foliage, it looks rich and velvety.
