Viola ‘Dancing Geisha’

Fanleaf Violet

USDA Zone: 5-9

Plant number: 1.545.100

This Japanese introduction has foliage quite unlike any other Violet. Clumps of pointy maple-shaped leaves are streaked with green, pewter and white, effective in the garden all season long. Tiny, fragrant pale blue or white violets appear among the leaves in spring. A terrific edging selection for the shady border or rock garden, and especially attractive in mixed tubs or containers of shade-loving perennials. Unlike some selections, this will not self-seed all over and become troublesome.
