Pansy Viola Gem Apricot Antique
Viola ‘Gem Apricot Antique’
This unique viola has an iridescent quality, and flower petals show a subtle hint of turquoise. Blooms open to reveal an antiqued plum coloration dusted with gold, giving them a peach quality. As flowers age, they lighten to a golden-apricot hue. Highly fragrant flowers are held on strong stems, growing upright with their faces showing above foliage.
Plant type: annual
Site: full sun
Days to maturity: 80-90 days
Plant spacing: 6”
Pinch: not necessary
Approx seeds per packet: 25
How to Grow:
Start seed indoors in trays 8-12 weeks before last frost. Seeds require darkness to germinate so lightly cover. Violas can withstand light frost, so cold climate gardeners can pick a transplant date that is about 2 weeks before the last frost date.
Pick when flowers are starting to open. A vase life of 5-7 days can be expected with flower food. Stems lengthen over time.
