Scientific Name: Viola tricolor

Grown in Williams, Oregon

This popular wild violet, known as Johnny Jump-Up or Heartsease Pansy, is cherished in gardens worldwide for its rapid spread once established. The iconic cheerful blooms feature purple and yellow petals with a white 'face', reminiscent of pansies. Growing only 4-12” tall, it thrives at meadow edges or beneath trees, especially in partial shade where it can bloom all season long.

This short-lived perennial (Zones 4-9) acts like an annual, flowering within 60 days when spring-planted. It prefers moist, shady spots, adding vibrant colors to spring or fall gardens. Easily self-sowing, Johnny Jump-Ups emerge in unexpected places each year.
