Probably everyone is aware of winter-flowering pansies, but the Viola family is large and expansive with lots of different types. Perennial violas, or violets, are among some of the best. Think of them as pansies that have grown up to behave and look more sophisticated! Being perennial, they will flower for several years, and being evergreen, their tight hummocks of dark green foliage will be ever-present in the garden. Add to this their long flowering period – from April to September – and delicious scent, and you have a true garden winner! They’re very pretty, very easy to grow and highly recommended.
Viola Etain is deliciously scented and is smothered in large, creamy-yellow flowers adorned with contrasting lavender-purple edges.
Viola Rebecca produces tight hummocks of foliage absolutely covered in heavily scented flowers that have a base colour of cream, shaded lemon on the lowest petal with a rich yellow eye. Each petal is then shaded to pale lilac with the edges flecked with mauve. Delightful!
