Like their Pansy cousins, northerners look to Violas as one of the first spring flowers as a reminder that warmer weather is on its way. Also known as Johnny Jump Ups, the world of Violas increased dramatically once plant breeding led to hybrid varieties about 10-15 years ago. With hybridization, the door opened for oodles of new flower colors and color combinations, and more free flowering plants. Plus the advent of hybrid violas has lengthened the growing and selling season in the southern and western regions of the U.S., and has proven overwintering ability in the northern states.
