Admire® Blackberry Mix Viola Seeds

(P) Pkt of 25 seeds
Item #51898-PK-P1


A harmonious quartet of pink and blue

A great alternative to pansies for gardeners in warm climates, Admire is a perennial series of horned violets that outlasts most others and flowers over 2 seasons a year. This mix of 4 shades of pink and blue (many with merry whiskers) brings you compact, spreading plants that are equally at home in the sunny border or containers.

Admire Blackberry Mix is a bold, bright, very heat- and drought-tolerant viola that flowers in spring and fall, surviving the hot summer far better than older horned violets are able to. The flowers are small and very plentiful, arising by the dozen on compact plants just 6 inches high and 6 to 9 inches wide. Carpet the garden floor with Admire, or let them fill baskets and flowerpots with tall, spiky cool-season plants as vertical accents.

Very tolerant of dry conditions, Admire offers excellent branching and more bright green foliage than you would believe possible from such a compact plant. It's refreshing and healthy, even in the dog days of August. And it comes back into its own, setting new flower buds, when the cool weather of fall arrives. In mild climates, it can bloom straight through from autumn to the end of spring.

Enjoy this long-lived beauty wherever you need bold color in small spaces. Viola is far hardier and easier to maintain than pansy, and such a lovely presence in the chilly weather.
