Frost, hot weather, neither really bothers Penny | So colorful, so easy
A brilliant picotee Penny, so charming three seasons out of the year. America’s favorite viola, Penny? Purple Picotee Viola delights with bright colors and unbelievable hardiness. Give this tiny gem a try for just one season, and then come back for a dozen more packets in every color.
Penny? Purple Picotee Viola is a true perennial, usually the first viola to bloom in spring, before the frost is completely gone from the ground. Very free-blooming, it scatters these charming lavender-blue and white “faces” freely above the deep green leaves, welcoming another season of beauty into the garden.
Very tolerant of heat, Penny is a great choice for southern and western gardens, where spring can give way suddenly to climbing temperatures and an early summer. And this tough-as-nails perennial doesn’t mind a touch of frost—it’s all in a day’s work for Penny.
This Penny? Purple Picotee Viola plant is just 4 to 6 inches high and 6 to 8 inches wide, perfect for neat accents, mass plantings, and overflowing containers.
