Viola arvensis (European Field Pansy) [20 Seeds]


Germination Information: For a plant that can self-sow so abundantly, getting the seeds started at first can take some patience. They apparently need dark conditions, so cover them lightly. Sow them in a pot or nursery bed anytime and set them outdoors; they will germinate when the conditions are right. Be aware that it may take a few weeks to several months for the first sign of sprouting (possibly not until the following spring), and not all of the seeds will germinate at the same time. They can be an exercise in patience, but they will eventually repay your efforts.

Note that this information will not be on the seed packet you receive.

If you appreciate tiny treasures as much as big, bold blooms, this little gem is worth a try. European field pansy (Viola arvensis) produces fingernail-sized flowers with pale yellow petals and a deeper yellow center brushed with a few purple whiskers. Usually reaching 6 to 10 inches tall, it’s a little charmer along a path or the front of a border. Here in southeastern PA, it flowers in spring and fizzles out when summer heat arrives; in cooler climates, it can flower into or even through the summer. Full sun to light shade. Annual. Self-sows freely once you get it established and can be considered weedy in some areas.

Collected in early June 2023. At least 20 seeds. Shipping to US addresses only.
