Neutral Baa On Nov 20, 2002, Baa wrote:

A floriferous cultivar Viola that made it's debut at Chelsea Flower Show 2000.

Has white flowers with violet-blue petal margins that infuse into the flower.

A short lived perennial that is perhaps best treated as an annual or biennial.

Loves a well-drained soil in sun to light shade. It may need shading during the hottest part of the day as they do burn and wilt if they over heat.

Will not come true from garden collected seed.
