Sorbet Mix Viola

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.
