Plant Description

Once again, Don Jacobs of Eco Gardens in Georgia spotted a winner and what a cool little violet this one is! The 2 upper petals are deep violet blue; the lower three are white or the palest blue; and the eye is bright orange! A real knock-out. It wants full sun or light shade and excellent drainage, and a spot in front of the rock garden or between paving stones or in a tufa trough. Flowering occurs for us mostly in late spring but sporadically all summer and into fall.
