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.
