new African violet





Rhapsodie Ingrid
(2015)

Not your average pink double, these unique
blooms are often triple, with over 20 petals.

Her rich green, red-backed foliage is in perfect harmony with the bright pink bloom color. The flowers feature thick, rounded petals that resemble a miniature rose. Ingrid's bloom center often has a symmetrical, decorative bowed shape that makes her an exquisite new addition to the Rhapsodie series of violets.


  Green African violet





mySensation
(2015)

The vivid green blooms last up to six weeks and an individual plant in a 4" pot may have up to 120 open blooms at one time. With the addition of Space Violet genes for continuous blooming, this variety is truly a step into the future of African Violets.

The new mySensation was first shown to the public on Facebook.com/optimara in 2014. It was an instant hit, with thousands of likes and shares. We decided to release it for 2015 by leaf. As of 2016 it's being propagated for retail distribution.
