| Viola 'Rebecca' (30)ct Flat
Common Name: Violet.
Zones 5 to 8
Full sun to full shade.
Mature height of 6 to 8 inches and a spread of 8 to 10;
Compact, clump-forming, herbaceous perennial.
White flowers flushed lemon yellow in the center and flecked with deep violet around the edges above evergreen foliage all season long. Especially in cooler areas of the country, 'Rebecca' may flower from May through October. This viola belongs to a group called 'Violettas' which are prized for their compact habit and delightful vanilla fragrance.
Violas are easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soil; best conditions are in cool, organic, moist, shady environments. Intolerant of drought and hot, humid summers, shade from deciduous trees is ideal as plants receive full sun in the spring, and protection from summer sun. In the south, violas should be grown in partial to full shade and mulched to help the soil stay cool and moist.
To stimulate additional flower production, plants should be sheared back periodically when blooming begins to decline. Plants can also be sheared back in early spring to remove any winter-damaged foliage.
