AVSA's 1999 Best Variety List

Floyd Lawson

1100 W. Huntington Dr., #21, Arcadia, CA 91007 floydll@earthlink.net

Welcome to AVSA's third "World's 25 Best African Violets" List. This list is from growers around the world sending in their lists of the 25 violets which were their favorites. Lists came from four continents and eight nations, totaling more that 9,000 votes. This is a truly worldwide effort. Thank you to all who participated. Thank you to each who has encour­ aged me along the way. I cannot personally answer each note, but they are deeply appreciated.

Again this year we have added the descriptions from AVSA's First Class computer data base. At the request of many, a list of the "runners up" without descriptions is appended.
