More Details

Purple and bronze compact heuchera leaves match the lovely Viola x wittrockiana 'Mystique Peach Shades' F1. These then form the understory to the sumptuous, scented Tulip 'Brownie'.

The idea with this is to combine evergreen foliage plants in a pot or border with spring-flowering violas and tulips, so you have colour from autumn through to May. In early spring the violas come into flower, crowned by the tulips later in the spring – when you can replant your pots with your summer pot combinations.

Border Position Container, Front, Ground Cover
Soil Type Acid, Alkaline, Chalky, Clay, Fertile, Neutral

Sowing, Seeds, Planting Plant Tulips first once the weather has turned wintery, then top the pot off with the evergreen Heuchera surrounded by the Viola
Care Tips Deadhead violas and remove pre-season foliage from the heuchera. Don't plant tulip bulbs until the cold weather has set in – this helps wipe out viral and fungal diseases. Leave the browning foliage on your tulips until every leaf has died right down – this allows the bulb to store more food.
Flowering March - May

Lovely collection though would like more advice as to size of pot to use and how many plants required to make a good show.
