Johnny Jump Up is a delightful low growing, flowering plant that is sure to bring joy to onlookers and insects alike. It’s colourful little blooms are a mixture of beautiful violet and yellow. They are known to attract an array of beneficial insects from butterflies, bees, lady bugs and even birds. Viola cornuta will grow to a graceful height of only 6 to 12 inches tall and do not require much attention once established. Each flower is roughly 1 inch in diameter and don’t mind a bit of mild crowding.

The Johnny Jump Up is not only a decorative plant, but can also be seen in salads as the flowers are in fact edible. They will grow quickly, bloom profusely. Viola cornuta seeds can be collected at the end of the growing season to sow the following year, or you can allow the Viola flower seeds to drop to the bare ground beneath to regrow naturally.

Johnny Jump Up is best grown in masses and can be seen in a variety of settings. Often used in pots & containers, but can be grown in flower beds or used as a border plant as well!

Each packet will create many plants!
