Genus Description Viola is a genus of about 500 species of annuals, biennials, evergreen, semi-evergreen, and deciduous perennials, and a few deciduous subshrubs, found in varied habitats in temperate regions worldwide. Many cultivars within the genus are informally referred to as garden pansies, violas, or violettas. They have a single-stemmed root system. Violas, sometimes referred to as tufted pansies, are compact, tufted perennials with usually scented, more or less rounded, often patterned flowers with rays, and a multi-stemmed root system. Violettas are similar to violas but are even more compact, with small, sweetly fragrant, oval flowers, each with a central yellow mark and no rays. These are short-lived perennials, which are grown for their colorful flowers. They are used in beds, borders, edging, and pots, hanging baskets, bouquets, rock gardens.
Care Tips
Cultivation Grow in fertile, humus-rich, moist but well-drained soil in full sun or partial shade. In a rock garden, grow in poor to moderately fertile, gritty, sharply drained soil in full sun or partial shade; protect from winter moisture. In an alpine house, use a mix of equal parts loam, leaf mold, and grit or tufa chips. Deadhead to prolong flowering. After flowering, cut back vigorous plants.
Pests and Diseases Prone to mosaic viruses, downy mildew, powdery mildew, crown and root rot, rust, gray mold, spot anthracnose, and other fungal leaf spots. Slugs and snails are common, as well as aphids and violet leaf midge.
