Description

Another new, and I'm confident, life-long favourite. A spring flowering viola in copper to peach and apricot. Its stems are long enough for picking and it makes the perfect filler for a series of mini table centre pots. I absolutely love this. It’s sweet yet stylish and its flowers are edible. Passionately recommended.

Care Tips

Prefers cool, protected, partial shade, especially in summer months with moist, but free draining soil or compost. Ideal edging a border or in a container.
