Viola tricolour Seeds

Viola tricolour is one of our most beautiful little wildflowers. Often called Wild Pansy or Heartsease this lovely annual plant produces perfect tiny flowers in shades of purple and yellow with cream. Blooms are wide open and attractive to Bees and Butterflies. In fact they are great for lots of pollinating insects.

Heartsease are lovely for cottage gardens and for wilder parts of manicured gardens such as an orchard. They love sun and dappled shade.They flower from April until September or even longer in sheltered gardens. They are also suited to naturalistic planting schemes and wild flower meadows because they grow beautifully with grasses, knautia, geranium and other wildflowers. Wild Pansies self seed once established.

Viola Tricolour has edible flowers which can be used in salads and as cake decorations.
