Plant of the Week

Etain Viola

Viola Etain in rocksPlant of the Week is the Etain Viola. Its flowers are so large they resemble pansies, but boast a much sweeter fragrance. At mountain altitudes this perennial is exceptionally reliable to provide great color impact from spring to early summer. Surprisingly, after a brief pause from its summer bloom, this local favorite returns to flower so that it seems to bloom continually year-round. A small plant, it is perfect for use in semi-shady spots under trees, in perennial borders, window boxes, and patio containers where it saturates the area with fragrance.
