This profusely blooming PERENNIAL and COLD HARDY “Viola” - native to Corsica and Sardina - bears so many flowers as to totally obscure the foliage! Long blooming, the 1” lavender-purple blooms delight from early Spring to Fall, especially with dead-heading, or you can cut it back to 2” tall anytime for another round of bloom. Need a pretty, long blooming plant for a container on your shady porch? This would be a very nice choice. Do plant in rich soil for most bountiful show! 6” x 12” Self-sows!
