Hi Petro, I bought icicle pansies and they did come back, most of them.
Am planting pansies and violas between hostas so they will get shade and hopefully flower well in fall and spring and overwinter...did have good luck with seeds from the store, only I should have sprinkled seeds more apart, they are clumped together, am dividing them!! Do like the violas the best and ordered seeds of different ones...
Did buy seeds for viola and not one came up, was very disapointed, but the old violas and pansies did come back..did lose some...but wanted to try the angel series of violas...supposed to be 'very hardy' but seeds never germinated, maybe I should have planted them in the fall???
I haven't tried the Angel series geraldine87 but they are listed as williamsii and I find williamsii very erratic germinators. I have gotten a few though by germinating in warm dark and then moving to cool 50-60 degrees in light once they sprout. They sprouted in about 2-3 weeks.
Thanks Dahlia, was $$$ getting these seeds and none comming up!!!
Am digging up old plants that reseeded to put between hostas...would sure have loved to get the 'angel' violas growing, just not meant to be...Geraldine ::)
