Viola Rebecca (Violetta, Viola, Pansy)

We planted these three healthy looking plants in front of one of our fir trees. I am anxious to see them flower.

Height: Short 8" / Plant 10" apart
Bloom Time: Summer to Fall
Sun-Shade: Mostly Sunny to Full Shade
Zones: 5-8 Get Your Zone
Soil Condition: Normal, Sandy, Acidic

Flower Color / Accent: White / Purple

Description: Clump forming Violetta does not spread. Enticing vanilla fragrance, evergreen foliage. Best in some shade - perfect under deciduous trees. Reblooms consistently if sheared when blooming begins to decline. Flowers are white flushed in lemon yellow with deep violet markings. 

General Information: Like miniature Pansies but blooming continuously right through the warmest summer. Perfectly hardy, we have seen them blooming here as the snow melts away. A vibrant splash of color. 

Plant Care: Remove seed heads to prevent prolific seeding.
