The delightful color combination in this blend is sure to pretty-up your garden. Violas bloom reliably in cool weather; sow them where they will receive afternoon shade to prolong blooming during hot spells. Violas are known to reseed, popping up in unexpected places to the delight of the gardener! Enjoy these delicately flavored flowers in salads, as cupcake toppers, or more. Perennial in USDA zones 6 to 9, often grown as an annual. Deer resistant.
