Are there any truly winter flowering violas or pansies? (This is a slightly unseasonal question). I know they are often marketed as such. But in my experience violas and pansies advertized as 'winter and spring flowering' tend to rot off at the stems or develop purple spot fungus during the coldest months, and they don't actually flower until the spring comes. Are there any truly winter flowering ones which can perform well flowering Dec to March? If so, how, where, and when are they available from? Do they need to be ordered as plugs or sown long before winter?
