Perfectly lovely patio container plant here in Zone 5a. I don't expect it to survive the winter here, but it has been frisky in ordinary potting soil and getting 6 hours of direct sun. A robust cultivar with gorgeous blooms!

This plant did great from late spring to mid summer. I planted 6 plants in a basket and they did great and rewarded me with lots of blooms and lovely fragrance. When the weather got really hot, in mid summer, the plants became very leggy and stopped blooming, I transplanted them into a hanging basket but they did not do very well. Since I am in zone 5a I will bring the hanging basket inside and hopefully they will come back next spring.

I planted one in my yard... it's now growing moss where it used to be. Guess that's what happens when you live in zone 6 and the plant grows in 7 & up. The site I bought it from said it was good for my zone.. guess not

What a sweet little plant! This is a beautifully colored bloom and makes a nice border or companion plant.

One of the many named cultivars of Viola that have to be propagated vegetatively.
This one has a good scent and grows well but, like all similar violas, it is a short lived perennial and needs to be propagated from regularly in order to keep it going.
