Enjoy delightful blue-purple flowers with white whiskers year after year. A vigorous self-sower.
This sought-after, heirloom viola native to the Mediterranean islands of Corsica, Sardinia, and Tuscany, brings cheerful, bright, blue-purple flowers to your garden every season!

Reseeds readily and is tolerant of heat and drought, unlike other violas. A 2003 Plant Select Winner.
