Viola tricolor Helen Mount | Johnny Jump Up | Heartsease


Here I am offering Seeds from Viola tricolor, also known as johnny jump up, heartsease, hearts ease, hearts delight, tickle-my-fancy, Jack-jump-up-and-kiss-me, come-and-cuddle-me, three faces in a hood, wild pansy, and love-in-idleness. This adorable little pansy does not mind if it lives in full sun or full shade, and it will adapt to most all growing conditions. This cute little survivor is the larval host plant for the Variegated Fritillary, Great Spangled Fritillary, and Gray Hairstreak butterflies. Johnny jump up is a nectar plant for the  Falcate Orangetip butterfly. The petals of this plant are edible and used in salads or desserts most of the time. The petals are picked just as the flower opens up and then they are soaked in cold water until they swell up. Not only are the flowers edible but they contain antioxidants. This plant is grown as an annual in some places and it is a short lived perennial in USDA Hardiness Zones 2b to 9

Viola x wittrockiana | Pansy Karma Blue Butterfly | Hearts Ease


Here I am offering Seeds from Viola x wittrockiana, also known as Pansy Karma Blue Butterfly, Hearts Ease, Ladies Delight, and Stepmothers Flower. These beautiful pansies like to grow in full sun to partial shade and they do not mind growing in a container either if that suits your needs. Young leaves and flower buds can be eaten cooked or raw. They are also used as a garnish or as a thickener in soups. You can also use the leaves to make tea. Violas in general are larval host plants for the Great Spangled Fritillary, Meadow Fritillary, Diana Fritillary, Aphrodite Fritillary, Regal Fritillary, Zerene Fritillary, Coronis Fritillary, Callippe Fritillary, Unsilvered Fritillary, Edwards Fritillary, Hydaspe Fritillary, Arctic Fritillary, Silver-bordered Fritillary, Mormon Fritillary, Atlantis Fritillary, Pacific Fritillary, Northwestern Fritillary, and Variegated Fritillary butterflies, and for the Great Leopard, and The Beggar moth. It is also a nectar source for the Southern Rocky Mountain Orangetip, Stella Orangetip, West Virginia White, and Falcate Orangetip butterflies. This plant is grown as an annual all over but is considered a tender perennial where it can live through the Winter in USDA Hardiness Zones 7 to 10
