AGM. If you are only going to plant one viola in your garden then this should be it! This robust and vigorous perennial makes a superb garden plant even in colder areas. The scented, rich violet flowers are long-stemmed, good for picking and are produced over an incredibly long period on mats of semi-evergreen foliage. Apr-Oct. H30cm S60cm.
Grow in fertile, humus-rich, moist but well-drained soil in full sun or partial shade. It starts flowering before most of the herbaceous perennials and will often still be flowering with the Asters in October. It is very long lived.
Macplants are central/southern Scotland's largest growers of herbaceous perennials, alpines, ferns and ornamental grasses. We have our plant centre open to the public in East Lothian, close to Edinburgh and we also supply a diverse range of trade clients both in the landscape and garden centre sectors.
We grow a large range of plants including many interesting and unusual varieties not usually seen for sale. Amongst the many plants we grow are our highly praised autumn Gentians bred here by Dr Ian McNaughton and probably the largest range of Meconopsis cultivars found anywhere.
