We love violas here in Maine, they are the first flowers we see after our long winters and the bold array of colors from this mix proved to be delightful: yellow, orange, multi shades of purple, white and varying bi-colors. They bloomed long into the summer and when we cut them back during the heat they re-bloomed with a vengeance.
