Viola Marina Blue - Pack of Six Plants
Availability: Out of stock
A versatile, very easy to grow Viola that flower profusely. Its small compact nature of small mid green leaves is the perfect foil for the subtle white to grey blue flowers which will appear in winter and will cover the entire plant in the spring. The petals can vary in their colours, having white edges to a darker grey purple at their base. Dark purple whiskers at the centre of the flower topped off with the typical Viola yellow centre.
“Marina’ looks at its most effective when planted in groups or drifts, their loud bright nature makes them ideal for a patio area or outside the front door, they are reliable, tough plants that will not let you down. These plants can take frozen ground, snow and the wind and still come up colourful, they are happy in full sun or partial shade. If planting in open ground, fork over the area to make sure it will not waterlog and if in a container, invest in a decent potting compost.
To make these plants thrive add some slow-release fertiliser in spring, pick over dead flowers from time to time and water in dry periods if container grown. Violas are superb spring bedding plants and when under planted with bulbs such as Tulip or Daffodil they provide the perfect seasonal display as nature awakes from its winter slumber. Planted in numbers in a bed or border or in a hanging basket this Viola brightens up any garden and will always work hard for the grower.
Supplied as a pack of 6 plants.
