The Q&A Archives: Planting Time For Violas

Question: I recently purchased viola seeds. When should I plant them and how soon will they bloom after planting?

Answer: Violas take about three to four months to come into bloom, so they are usually started in very early spring indoors or possibly used as a fall bedding plant. Some varieties of viola perform as annuals, meaning they exhaust themselves from blooming so much and are thus discarded at the end of the season. Others may be perennial and perform well from early spring into fall each year.
