I introduced these cheerful little “Johnny Jump Ups” into my garden about 7 years ago. They always return when the time is right and they always seem to “JUMP UP” year after year. They flower in profusion right through the Winter and finally die down in late Summer.
Viola tricolor, known as heartsease, heart’s ease, heart’s delight, tickle-my-fancy, Jack-jump-up-and-kiss-me, come-and-cuddle-me, three faces in a hood, or love-in-idleness.
They are hermaphrodite and self-fertile, pollinated by bees.
Look around in the nurseries now for these delightful little flowers. They are sold as Violas
