Viola tricolor Viola Tricolor (heartsease)
Heartsease - 9 cm
Viola tricolor, better known as Heartsease or Wild pansy, is a delightful low-growing perennial producing masses of small yellow and purple flowers over dark green scalloped leaves. Although short-lived, it will self-seed freely and looks lovely allowed to naturalise in informal parts of the garden. Flowers all summer long, in sun or partial shade. The flowers add flavour and prettiness to summer salads.
