Viola cornuta Sorbet® XP Blackberry

Perennial Pansy

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.551.390

(=‘PAS867911’) The Sorbet® XP Series is a completely new generation in Viola cornuta. It delivers amazing uniformity across a wide range of dazzling colours, more blooms on every plant and less stretching. It is also more tolerant of summer heat and winter cold than the annual pansy types. This beautiful selection from the series features fragrant, velvety, purple-black flowers with a tiny, yellow eye. Excellent for massing, edging, rock gardens and in hanging baskets and other containers. Nice for combining with spring flowering bulbs. Trim plants back by half in early June. Sometimes these will flower all winter in climates with mild weather. All pansies and violas have edible flowers.
