The only violas I have are in containers because I bought two of those bowl planted things they sell each spring. One is shades of yellow and cream. The other dark purple. I put those on my back stoop by my kitchen door were I am always going in and out of.
Then I also bought afew cell packs of the most lovely ones called Penny Citrus Mix. They are orange ones and yellow ones mixed and so lovely. I planted those on two large pots at my side door. They really are stunning.
This is the first time I have bought violas. I usually buy pansies but was struck this time both by how lovely the violas look and how nice they smelled.
So now I am interested in violas. What can you tell me about them? Who grows them and how do you use them in the landscape? Do they come back year after year or not? Thanks!
