Johnny Jump-Up Seeds - Viola pedunculata ssp. tenuifolia or Viola cornuta
Johnny Jump-Up is a cheerful, tri-colored pansy look-alike Viola that is eye catcher in the cool months of the growing season (spring and fall).
The dainty blooms appear very early in the season and are fragrant. Plants reseed readily and are very much at home in the rock garden or wild garden. They will re-bloom in fall if cut back in summer.
Direct sow immediately after last expected frost, or start seeds indoors six to eight weeks before the last frost. Cover seeds with 1/8" of soil, water well, and keep warm. Johnny Jump Up can take up to 3 weeks to germinate so be patient. They are worth the wait.
