What I ordered.
” (LE Karusel’) Spectacular semidouble wavy white stars with cherry red patches. Medium green and white variegated foliage. Standard. “
Does this look like cherry to you? Because it looks violet to me. Like what kind of cherries are these? These must be alien cherries from Venus or something.
Update from the seller: “The color is correct. As is always the case with “red” on violets, it can look purplish, depending upon light its viewed in and environment. There is no “true” red in African violets (not genetically possible). This is about as red as it gets on AVs.”
So they cherry-picked a flower and photographed it and then described it in a way to make it seem redder. I call shenanigans. Oh well. It’s still pretty, but I will probably look for someone with more realistic pictures.
