We heard your feedback and are aware that African Violets have a rough time surviving for long in a retail environment. Now we have developed a zip-code based alert system for our fresh violet shipments!

When you sign up on and select "Email Alerrts", you can select a range of 5, 10, 15 or 25 miles from your zip code, each time fresh violets are sent to a retailer in that area you'll get an alert with the shipment date and the name(s) & location(s) of Optimara African Violet retail distributors (Lowe's, Home Depot, Local Nurseries, etc).

Turn alerts on or off anytime with the click of a button!
Once you have enough beautiful violets for now, this feature is easy to turn ON and OFF. At the bottom of each message is a link to "Unsubscribe"  which will turn off Alerts until you decide go back to your myViolet profile and turn them on again.
