A Viola cornuta, commonly called horned violet or tufted violet, Sorbet? Tiger Eye Viola is a perennial, often grown as an annual, offering spring, autumn, and winter (regional) interest. A cheerful garden addition, abundant, pansy-like, yellow flowers have unusual stripes and attract bees and butterflies. The fragrant flowers are edible and make excellent pressed flowers for crafts.
Sorbet? Tiger Eye Viola has a low, bushy, mounding habit of evergreen leaves that spreads by creeping stems. Shown to best effect when mass planted, Sorbet? Tiger Eye Viola is an especially nice companion for spring-flowering bulbs. It is suitable for rock gardens and a nice size for border fronts, containers, and window boxes. Once established, this violet makes an effective groundcover.
A low maintenance garden favorite for generations, viola prefer full to part shade and fertile, humus-rich, evenly moist, well-drained soils. Cold hardy to -10¡ãF, Sorbet? Tiger Eye is shade and frost tolerant and deer and black walnut resistant.
Viola seeds can be started indoors 8 to 10 weeks before the last frost date and transplanted into the garden in early spring.
