Viola 'Rebecca'


Viola 'Rebecca' (Viola tricolor)

This is a perennial Viola - I love the delicate colour of it.

The beauty is in the simplicity.

It's lovely. Perennial sounds good.

Wait for it ....it's fragrant as well! Mind you, you have to lie down on the grass to get your nose into it! LOL.

Divine!

Oh I remember this one I used to grow it, so beautiful, exquisite colour.

love it Spritz - do you have any seeds? :-)

This is lovely, I love flowers with Christian names, & will buy a plant for a name if it reminds me of a friend.

No, Angie - no seeds yet. I will try to remember to collect some - the trouble is at the moment I am dead-heading them (I have another calle 'Etain' ) as I want them to keep on flowering.

By the way, that Lychnis coronaria you asked about is sterile - no seeds, I'm afraid!

Super, Spritz! Took Mum to a local garden centre last week and we fell in love with this, the prettiest Viola either of us had seen and scented too....a real gem.

So - do I have to guess whether it went home with you? ;-)

Well, after much pulling and tugging, Mum won! (only joking....I'll have some of her seeds when it's time)....:o)

never mind thanks anyway....just wondering forgive me if i sound daft but how do you know if something is sterile or if the seed is not likely to be true to the mother plant? i have always wondered this. - as i don't have a clue i just collect seeds and sow them sometimes they work sometimes they don't.

LOL. I read that in my RHS book! Otherwise, I really don't know!

Does anyone else on GOY - I bet there's somebody with the info????

My Lychnis coronaris is certainly not sterile - it's seeded itself around all over the place! I think i have some seed saved somewhere if you want some Angie?

Sid, this is Lychnis coronaria 'Gardeners' World' we are talking about - the others are not sterile, only this one, as far as I know. It's a double maroon flowered one.

So pretty:)

Thanks Sid but i have the same going on with the one i already have, what colour is yours? mine is hot pink single bloom - if you have the white or another colour will gladly do you a swap? - i have ready grown plants in my greenhouse.

Beautiful...

Angie - I have the hot pink single sort and also the white - but until they flower I can't tell which is which! Can I take cuttings I wonder? If I wait until they flower maybe I could take a cutting from a white one? The seeds I have could be either colour I'm afraid. S.
