Viola 'Starry Night' Viola
Also called Violas or Violettas, these are related to garden pansies, but usually propagated by division or cuttings rather than by seed. Generally more tolerant of summer heat and a little hardier than their large-flowered cousins. These are versatile plants, useful for edging, in the rock garden, and especially in containers or window boxes. Superb companions to spring-flowering bulbs. This selection has primrose-yellow petals with contrasting edges of mauve purple. Trim plants back in June to rejuvenate the foliage.
