I bought this AV from a local nursery last year. The AVs at the nursery were supplied by Old Dominion African Violet Society. This one was labeled as Frozen in Time, but there was another one looking the same but labeled as Frosted Frolic. I think labels fell off at the nursery and were put back into the wrong pots sometimes.
This photo was taken in high light. The flowers actually have more green than it shows in the photo. Can anybody please help to ID this AV? Thanks!!!
Lynn, I read about Frozen in Time somewhere a while back. It was said that the flowers were white, but COULD be lavender sometimes :-(. Very confusing. The description of Frosty Frolic on this site http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/131579/ mentions semi-double flowers. The flowers on my plant are not considered semi-double, are they?
I just looked both of these plants up in the AVSA's First Class database. The Frozen in Time pictures show whitish flowers with a very definite and wide green border on each petal. The Frosty Frolic pictures show a predominantly lavender flower. It does not show the bordering seen on yours. I hope I haven't muddied the waters too much.
Thanks for the response, everybody. It is a pretty plant regardless. Maybe I can gate-crash the Old Dominion AV Society summer BBQ party and ask the person who sold this plant to ID it for me :-).
Connie, things are still crazy at work -- thanks for asking. AVs love my office though. I have a very large sunny window :-) So far I have kept the promise of not getting out of control with too many AVs and streps, but the number of plants is creeping up slowly. Since I cannot do much garden work this year, my attention is all on my AVs. I told my boss that I didn't need a window office. I just needed a window :-).
