Bright pansy


Bright pansy (Viola wittrockiana)

I haven't had this colour in a pot before - I'm not too sure about it with my 'Little Red Robin' plant.

Thank you, Tt. Maybe it'll 'grow on me'! lol.

This is a winner...
especially as it has greeeeen leaves around it ;o)

LOL. I agree with that one! ;-)

Yes, and no slug chewing marks!! :))

Nice........

Slugs? Never heard of them...lol. It's actually birds that peck my brighter violas and pansies....I don't think the snails do.

I'm glad you like it, Milky. :-)

Really pretty, but it looks like a tough color to harmonize. I would combine it with bronze and orange snapdragons, but I would be surprised if those were winter flowers in your area!

You're so right, Tug, although I do have snapdragons still flowering away in the garden - not for much longer, though. :-((

Thanks for understanding my doubts about the colour - I'll have to take a photo of the whole container. I 'think' it's OK with the Photinia leaves, but I'm not 100% happy with the combination.

I still haven't seen one of the 'Little Red Robins ' Barbara , they might not sell them at the smaller nurseries , I should have looked when we were staying at Cambridge last week ,Scotsdales at Gt Shelford was huge , in fact we had to go back twice ...LOL........

Well - I did see them at an independent Nursery, so you might still be lucky.

My goodness! That must be a HUGE place - what fun. :-)

A lovely rich colour, like to see it in the pot with the Little Red Robins?

OK, I'll have a go at taking a photo of the whole pot.
