Viola cornuta Penny™ Orange Jump Up

Perennial Pansy

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.551.320

Also known as Viola, or Horned Violet. This lovely hybrid, part of the Penny™ Series, features bright orange faces with pretty purple wings. Plants are low and compact, producing flowers throughout the cooler months of the year, especially in spring and fall. Divide or start with fresh plants each September, as these need to be renewed regularly. Performs best in regions with cool summers and low humidity. Flowers are edible and commonly used in China for Herbal Tea! Great garnish for cold fruit or cream soups.
