I planted 7 seeds today of the Philippine Violet Shrub. Seed packet said soil had to be at least 78 degrees.
Philippine Violet, Barleria cristata. The dark green foliage is very attractive and virtually pest and disease free. But itís in late summer to fall that the real show begins, as the upright plant stems load up with an abundance of lavender flowers that last until frost.
I will keep you posted. Wish me luck. I got the seeds from Onalee's Seeds. Great place for unusual seeds.
