Viola 'Kittens'

Viola x 'Kittens'

These tiny sweet Violas with whiskery faces are the last of the Spring flowers. This week has seen the start of summer temperatures with the mercury set to tip over 100 degrees F, in the old scale, for the rest of the week. If you live in a more temperate climate these little beauties will flower through the summer if given a spot in morning sun and a cool root run. Removing spent flowers is also important to keep them flowering longer.

  1. Ian, your incredible photograph of these beautiful Violas looks, at first glance, like a fine porcelain china dish. Magnificent!
