Viola cornuta sorbet XP 'Pink Halo'

 

Viola 'Pink Halo'

Original:Sorbet XP delivers a uniform plant habit and the tightest flowering window, making it ideal for bench-run pack programs. Breeding is focused on the plant architecture so you deliver a better-looking product at retail – superior branching means the plants cover the soil at flowering, with more blooms on every plant and less stretching. Fewer PGRs are needed, holdability is superior and shrink is cut way back.  Early-blooming Sorbet remains compact in both heat and cold, making it a standout multi-season performer. The free-flowering plants perform across a wide range of climatic conditions and have excellent overwintering. Sorbet offers the most colours of any viola series and the most choices available for creating programs, and landscapers can customize their mixes with novelty varieties. https://www.mullerseeds.com/viola-sorbet-xp-pink-halo.html New:Viola is a genus of over 500 species of compact, hardy annual and herbaceous perennial plants. The cultivated species are all perennial. V. wittrockiana, the garden pansy is one of the most popular of all garden plants and is often used for bedding. The hybrids produce a wide range of colourful flowers over a long period. The open flowers consist of 5 petals which in the pansy types are rounded, and 4 of the petals face up, and one points downwards. (Violets have 3 pointing up, and two pointing downwards)

Propagation by seed

From Mid Summer TO Late Summer

Sow seeds for V.tricolor and V. wittrockiana in mid to late Summer, either outdoors in a damp shaded site, or boxes placed in a cold frame. Transplant the seedlings into nursery beds, 4 inches apart until they are moved to a flowering site in Autumn. Seedlings sown in the cold frame should be potted up to 3 inch pots of John Innes No 1 and overwintered in the cold frame and moved to the flowering site in Spring

 

Summer or winter flowering

From Late Spring TO Early Spring

The summer flowering hybrids are in bloom from late Spring to early Autumn. Winter flowering varieties usually bloom from mid Winter to mid Spring, occasionally in the Autumn.

 

Planting Outdoors

From Early Autumn TO Late Spring

Plant violas in Autumn or Spring. Plant in any fertile, moist but well drained soil in sun or partial shade.
