Kφnigin Charlotte – Wilhelm Gerst, (Bietigheim) Germany.  September 1899.

The mid-blue, up-ward looking flowers are held on long stems above the leaves, very free-flowering from August onwards and even more in spring, but not in winter.  It is often mentioned that 'Kφnigin Charlotte' is not suitable for forcing at Christmas time.  A real problem is the fact that early descriptions say that it is dark blue, but at least since WWII it is described as above.  'Kφnigin Charlotte' can be propagated by seed and comes quite true. This may be the reason for the variability.  It is advisable to inspect plants in autumn and discard plants which are not true to description.  I Germany, all the garden authorities have strongly recommended 'Kφnigin Charlotte'.  This has led to the depressing fact that all other blue varieties of scented violets have been excessively neglected. See also: 'Queen Charlotte'.

Kronprinzessin Viktoria – See, ‘Kronprinzessin von Deutschland’.

Kronprinzessin von Deutschland – Germany; c 1880s.
