Including Viola 'Rebecca' and Viola cornuta 'Bowles Black'
Hailing from the world’s temperate regions, these endearing hardy selections are reliably perennial. They prosper in bright shade with fertile, well-drained and evenly moist soil.
Touted as one of the darkest hued flowers in cultivation, this long blooming Viola will indeed work some magic wherever it’s planted. Each large, 1 in. wide edible flower possesses sumptuous jet black hues and a small sunny yellow eye that’s rimmed with violet above a compact, grassy green dainty-leafed clump. ‘Black Magic’s low growing heat tolerant habit promises oodles of blossoms throughout the cooler months, an autumn encore if trimmed back and renewed vigor following a September dividing.
Blooms May– September.
Size: 6"–8" high x 6"–8" wide; hardy to zone 5.
Viola ‘Black Magic’ (P-1780)

Violets have long been associated with faithfulness, and this delicate beauty holds true to her promise, blooming nonstop from spring until frost. Lifted on thin stems just above small, green scalloped leaves, the lavish display of dainty, midnight black flowers achieves a velvet luxury as deep purple accents surround golden eyes. Always appreciative of a good trimming, this compact Violet can be naturalized under a shrub, situated amid Alchemilla erythropoda by the patio or planted in a favored terracotta vessel.
Size: 8" high x 12" wide; hardy to zone 7.
Viola cornuta ‘Bowles Black’ (P-1290)

‘Rebecca’ is treasured for her divine vanilla fragrance and tidy compact clumps of dapper evergreen foliage. All are equally captivating, though no two are alike, each ebullient white flower showcases a creamy lemon flushed center and irregularly patterned, deep violet edges. This sweet smelling Viola should be ensconced near a well-traveled path or seating area, where its plentiful color flecked flowers can be easily relished ‘till the first hard frost.
Blooms May – mid-October.
Size: 8"–10" high x 10"–15" wide; hardy to zone 5.
Viola ‘Rebecca’ (P-1674)
