Milan, OH

Alpine Sea Holly

Striped Malva
Beauty of Livermere Oriental Poppy
Red Flame Angel Viola
Tiger Eye Angel Viola
Irish Moss
Viallii Primrose
Sweet William var 'Sooty'
Amber Kiss Angel Viola
Monarch's Velvet

Please advise I don't know if this can be winter sowed or not. This is my first year to winter sow.

Hi Anita,

Yes to all except the Irish Moss, which is a "maybe". The people I have heard talking about is haven't had good luck with it, but I never heard why.

In zone 4 or 5, you might consider getting a jump start with the Violas and Primulas and sowing them inside. You would get 2 more months of bloom on the violas if you did this. Or does it stay cool in the summer where you are?
