Viola 'Etain' (Violet)

Thumbnail Photo

Good in containers. Throats of flowers are purple-yellow and pretty spectacular. May not come back each year, but it's still worth it, as so many of our customers say each year. We typically sell out so early in the season. Combine with Thymus 'Highland Cream', Trollius pumilus, Bergenia 'Solar Flare'.

A rare and elegant viola! This beautiful English hybrid has extra large 1.75 inch wide, pale lemon yellow blossoms with contrasting lavender-purple margins and a delightful fragrance. Though it blooms the heaviest from late spring to early summer, it will continue to send up flowers sporadically throughout the summer and into fall. 'Etain' is a clump-forming type, unlike many other violets which are groundcovers.
