Viola ‘Black Magic’

Perennial Pansy

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.545.300

Also known as Violas, or Winter Pansies. 'Black Magic' is most unusual, with flowers as close to jet black as you could imagine, each with a tiny yellow eye. Plants are low and compact, producing flowers throughout the cooler months of the year, especially in spring and fall. Makes for an interesting contrast colour in the border. Divide plants each September, since they are not long lived and need to be renewed regularly. Flowers are edible!
