Violas perennials

Violas perennialsThe hardy perennials of the Violas are suitable for the front of flower borders or rock-work, but the smaller species succeed best when grown in pots in a mixture of loam, peat, and sand.

The Violas herbaceous kinds are increased by seed or division of the roots, the shrubby varieties by cuttings planted under glass, and the annuals by seed sown in the open in spring.

The height of the Violas differs from three to six inches.
