Viola Trio: 9 Plants

This isn't some kind of chamber music gig, friends, this is Violapalooza. These chicks are hardy, edible, perennial, and adaptable to sun and shade. Great for containers and under/in front of bigger plants, and cute for places like window boxes, around mailboxes, and tied up with a bow on gift boxes.

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 9 young plants, grown in 2.5" diameter pots, three per variety: Brushstrokes, Etain, and Freckles Violas.

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
Care Instructions Water regularly. Deadhead to encourage more blooms and for a tidier look
Extra Credit Petals are edible and delicious when candied

  • Help - some of my violas are turning brown in places and drooping. Just a-few days ago they looked fine . Now they look terrible. Weather has warmed up just recently. I’m in Southern California. Plants have been watered. Any ideas?

    Violas are cool-weather-loving plants - can you move them to a place with more shade (esp in the afternoons when the heat is the strongest!)
