Plant of the month

Viola.

Pansies and violas are not only beautiful; they are also signals that spring has arrived. The pansies and violas we grow today have greatly improved over the past decade. Now there are dozens of colors, color combinations, bloom sizes and even some distinctive plant habits. Pansy & Viola Basics Colors Traditionally, pansy and viola blooms had either bold, solid colors or multi-colored "faces" (a splotch of contrasting color). Pansy color choices have now expanded beyond yellow, orange, red, blue and white into some gorgeous delicate shades of pink, maroon, gold, primrose yellow and lavender. Viola colors include purple, blue, white and yellow.
