Floyd Lawson

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

Welcome to the first Best Variety List of the new century. Here are the 25 favorites of growers around the world, send­ing in their lists of the 25 African violets which are their favorites. This is truly a worldwide effort. Thank you to all who participated and thank you to each who encouraged me along the way. 1 cannot personally answer each note, but the comments are deeply appreciated.
