Hi bonitin,

That's name is "Blue swirl". I grow violas from seed every year to save
seedlings money:)
These are different viola "apricot shade".

If you want to see what the big growers have to choose from go to>

http://ivygarth.com/images/Annuals.htm

and scroll down to pansy and viola. Ivy Garth is one of those companies that places like Park Seed and others buy from and then they repack them for small scale growers.
