Gardeners' Notes:

Positive Zone6aPA On May 5, 2009, Zone6aPA from Central, PA (Zone 6a) wrote:

This has performed well, second year from seed. Like a true viola it dies back in winter and rejuvenates in spring. Blooms spring to fall (slows down a bit during the very hottest weeks of summer) with deadheading. Transplants easily. Very large showy flowers for a viola; unique coppery maroon color and firm velvety blooms in warm sunny weather, somewhat more purplish and weaker petals during cool, humid, cloudy weather.


This plant has been said to grow in the following regions:
