DESCRIPTION: Classic old-fashioned viola with cheery sunny yellow and deep violet faces. Ideal bedding plant, potted colour or filler for gaps in sunny rock gardens. PLANTING: Late Summer-Autumn, and spring in cooler parts of Australia. Sow seeds into trays containing seed raising mix, cover with a fine layer of soil and keep moist. Thin seedlings when plants have 2-4 leaves, transplant when seedlings are large enough to handle. Plant in free draining soil in a full sun-partly shaded location for best flowering. Preparing garden beds with well composted manure will give the best results. CARE: Water seedlings regularly until established and continue to provide water especially during dry spells. Mulch plants to keep the shallow roots cool in summer. Frost hardy once established.
