Viola, Black Devil Pansy

100% of 100

Perhaps the boldest black flower in the garden, with blooms the color of India ink, and a diminutive yellow eye. The design possibilities are endless with this variety, from container mixes to en masse planting in beds and borders. The compact, floriferous plants reach 6 inches tall and look fantastic planted chockablock for a dramatic effect! Don’t forget: these flowers are also edible!

Growing Tips: Start seeds indoors in very early spring (or late summer for fall blooms). Seeds need darkness to germinate; cover soil surface with cardboard or enclose pots in black plastic; remove as soon as sprouts begin to appear. Grow in full sun to partial shade. Likes cool, moist, woodsy soil, cool-to-cold temps. Occasionally self-sows.
