Viola – Gem Antique Apricot


apricot-colored flowers with pale purple streaking


Product Description

Dainty antique color features apricot and pale purple streaking.  Ultra hardy and heat tolerant.  Quick to flower and great for both fall and spring.

Plants reach 6-10″ tall.

You can start violas indoors 6-8 weeks before your last average frost, or you can start outdoors in cell packs in fall or early spring.

Press into soil and lightly cover. Keep out of direct sunlight until seeds germinate as darkness aids germination. Kept at 65-70° F, germination is in 7-14 days. Transplant into the garden 8-10″ apart.

Viola seeds are best used within a 2 year period as they start to lose their viability after that.

Violas prefer full sun to partial shade and need cooler temperatures to thrive. They prefer moist, humus-rich, well-drained soil. They need regular water, especially in warmer weather. Fertilize every 2 weeks with a general, balanced, all-purpose fertilizer. Be wary of using a nitrogen-heavy fertilizer where the first nutrient number is higher than the other two.

Remove faded/dead flowers to encourage plants to produce more blooms and to prolong the blooming season.
