Natures Shade Mulberry Viola Plants

Sangria in flower form. So many colors, you're bound to love at least a few of them. Probably all of them. If you can't decide which plants to get, you should start by getting these. They will fill all your wants, needs, and flower pots.

Don't under-estimate these stout, fluttery little friends. They are tough as old boots. Frost tolerant, heat tolerant, smell wonderful, and can even take a trampling. They are the go-to flower for when its too early or too late in the season for all other outdoor flowers, and we are their biggest fans.

Includes three young plants, grown in 2.5” diameter pots.

Growing Info
How to Plant Dig a hole twice the size of the root ball. Fill a little bit of the loose dirt back into the hole and tuck your plant in so the base of the stem is even with the top of the hole. Now fill in the rest of the soil around the roots, give the soft ground around the base of your new plant friend a few solid pats to compress the soil onto the roots, and a long, gentle drink of water
Where to Plant Find a place in the sun or part shade, with well-draining soil
When to Plant Plant outside in the spring, after your last frost. Avoid the heat of the day when planting — plant in the early morning, late afternoon, or by the light of the moon
When to Expect Blooms Blooms from early spring through early winter. They may stop blooming to preserve energy during the hottest weeks of summer

Ask a Question
  • Are they perennial?

    Hi! They are generally treated as annuals but may come back in mild regions. Thanks for reaching out!

  • Will these grow in zone 10b?

    Viola plants love cooler weather to bloom, so we do not recommend them in areas hotter than zone 9.
