Viola ‘Columbine’

Perennial Pansy

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.545.410

Violas are related to garden pansies, but usually propagated by division or cuttings rather than by seed, and generally more tolerant of summer heat and a little hardier than their large-flowered cousins. These are versatile plants, useful for edging, in the rock garden, and especially in containers or window boxes. Superb companions to spring-flowering bulbs. This selection features white flowers strongly edged in streaky dark purple, and a tiny yellow eye. Flowers are edible! Divide each September, as plants need to be renewed regularly. Trim plants back in June to rejuvenate the foliage.
