In 2013, Persian Violet (Exacum affine) produced a continuous profusion of beautiful violet blossoms for me in my hot and humid zone 7a garden for virtually the entire growing season. It did well in medium to moist soil in morning sun. At the end of the season, this short-lived perennial declined and eventually died. It is a pretty plant that does not attract pollinators in Maryland.
