Dan Heims of Terra Nova Nurseries said it best when he called this cultivar an “interplanetary gem.” Though it produces fragrant lavender flowers, it is truly the foliage that sets this Viola apart from all others we’ve seen. Dark purple stains color each leaf setting the veins into such relief as to drop your jaw. Use in containers or with other violas in the foreground of the mixed border. Hardy to 0F. Garden origin.
