V is for Violas

I love violas. They are cheerful, easy to grow, and make me look like I know what I’m doing as a gardener. They are perfect for filling in a potted grouping – they just grow where there’s space and fill in the gaps other plants create. They are like the connectors in the flower container world, like Alyssum, another favorite of mine.

There are many beautiful varieties now. I usually grab them all. Last year I found some that were nearly black in color. Can’t find them this year.

Even with all the rain we’ve had in April, these showy blooms brighten my spirit and tell me there are warm summer days ahead. And that’s when they disappear!

I want color year-round, so I’m grateful these guys bloom their hearts out early, as the warm-up act to the showy zinnias, day lillies, roses, snapdragons and sweet williams that bloom for me in the summer.

So, from my garden to yours, have a wonderful April day.
