Frizzle Sizzle Mix Pansy
Viola x wittrockiana. This eccentric viola has a razzle-dazzle appeal with completely ruffled edges like whirling petticoats! Richly colored flowers up to 3" wide are displayed throughout the summer atop compact plants. Suitable for pots as well as flower beds. Available in orange and a mix. Grows 6" high and 8-10" wide. Approx. 25 seeds/pkg.
Start inside 8 weeks before planting out. Lightly cover seed, provide total darkness and normal room temperatures. Should germinate in 10-20 days. May also be direct seeded into the garden in early spring or early autumn. Transplant outside in early spring into a part shade location.
Only plant in full sun in areas with cool summers. Very frost tolerant and prefers cool, moist conditions. Provide rich, moist well-drained soil. A mulch is often helpful. Deadhead regularly to ensure that plants bloom all season. Self-seeds.
