Viola flowers

[Photo: Viola Penny Primrose.]Viola hybrids are small annuals grown for their flowers, which are like small pansies. Like pansies, violas are available in a wide range of colours: purple, yellow, blue, mauve, pink, rusty red, orange, and white. These pale yellow violas are 'Penny Primrose'. You can see more violas in the 'Penny' series at Stokes.

[Photo: Viola Sorbet Lemon Chiffon.]Viola 'Sorbet Lemon Chiffon' is from the extensive 'Sorbet' series of violas. [Photo: Violas, unknown purple cultivar.]I couldn't find the name of this bright purple cultivar.

All violas in this post were photographed at Mimi's Convenience, 1686 Danforth.
