This is my first experience with viola. I wanted a plant that could tolerate shade for this particular planter I had, which doesn’t get much direct sunlight throughout the day due to the location. They remind me of pansies, but it seems they aren’t blooming as well now that I’ve had it for a few weeks.
You can tell the plant has grown, but it seems the flowering process has slowed. Of course, I’m not really picking off the dead blooms to encourage more flowering, so I should probably focus on doing that and see if it improves. Overall, the plant seems to be doing well. The flowers are beautiful!
