A very distinctive variety, which is almost like a perennial pansy. The large, rounded flowers are cobalt blue with a cream blotch in the centre. Apr-Oct. H20cm S30cm.
It is a good choice for pots. For a cool, moisture retentive, humus-rich soil preferably in a sunny situation. Like most violas, it blooms over a very long period, benefitting from a quick haircut after its first flowering to encourage more to appear and to keep the plant looking tidy.
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.
