Illustrated by Peggy Turchette. Nothing is as charming as a patch of Johnny-Jump-Ups poking their heads above the snow. Although violas are a perennial, they are often grown like an annual because they do not perform well in an extended period of heat. USDA zones 4-8 can reliably plant violas as a perennial. Other areas may want to use them as cool season annuals. Violas will return in all zones by reseeding. No GMOs. All our seeds are untreated.
