Trailing Johnny Jump Up is often the first Viola to bloom in spring, before the frost is completely gone from the ground. Very free-blooming, it scatters its merry faces freely above the deep green leaves, welcoming another season of beauty into the garden!
This trailing plant is very colorful, with blooms sporting two tones of blue with accents of soft yellow and white beneath the blue whiskers. Just one inch across, the flowers stand out nonetheless, not only for their early showing but for their rich colors and great numbers. In northern climates Trailing Johnny Jump Up blooms in spring and again in fall; in southern and western areas, it often flowers all winter!
This plant is just 3 to 4 inches high, but spreads 10 to 12 inches wide, forming a dense mat on the garden floor or lolling over the side of containers. You will be charmed! Pkt is 50 seeds. Zones 6-9, but best grown as a spring-through-fall annual in northern climates, and as a fall-through-spring annual farther south.
