Product Details

Product Details

The basic shades of Viola 'Columbine' are blue and white, but the composition is a lot more interesting. The scented flowers are a soft, lilac-infused white marbled and streaked with violet-blue and held about 10″ high. Plants start flowering toward the end of May and carry on into fall.

Viola is a valuable genus composed of more than 400 species of perennials from the world's temperate regions. There has been much hybridizing among species, resulting in many gradations of flower form and hardiness. The varieties offered here are reliably perennial for us. They prosper in full sun or partial shade (partial shade is always best in the South and the warmest reaches of Zones 9 and 10 in the West). Violas want even moisture and will tolerate quite damp soil.

The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.


We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the green Shipping Details box for each item. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at the expected time of delivery.


We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

Robust little grower!

Tons and tons of large flowers! My favorite viola yet. I plan on ordering more next year. I prefer this hands down to Rebecca so far, although I'm giving her a 3rd year before I jump to conclusions. I should say that mine have more white in the flower than the WWF picture. I don't know if this is caused by location, amount of sunlight, or plant variation itself. Still lovely, though.

Non-stop blooms

I just ordered more of these lovely plants, as they bloomed non-stop from last spring through fall, and they're already blooming (Mid April) in Zone 5. Their " tie-dye"effect is quite interesting, and the color is wonderful.
They don't spread out much,but stay in a neat clump.

Plant Violas in full sun or partial shade (partial shade is always best in the South and in warm inland areas of the West). Violets generally require moisture-retentive soil, the exception being V. pedata varities, which demand well-drained, acid soil.
