Like other violas, the Penny Yellow Blotch is known for its playful, face-like flowers. In this case, they are large and bright yellow with central black whiskers. What sets it apart from other violas is an ability to tolerate heat without becoming leggy and an extensive root system that allows it to overwinter well. Additionally, the fragrant flowers are edible, and make an attractive garnish.

The Penny violas are cultivars of the Viola cornuta species. Their compact, mounded form makes them easy to care for and keep looking tidy throughout the long growing season. When established, violas like this one are among the first plants to pop up and flower each year. They are useful small plants for containers, adding color to an herb/edible garden, or filling in around larger plants in a landscape. 

Viola Penny™ Yellow Blotch Viola Care

This type of viola can withstand the hot sun better than other violas, but may perform at its peak with a bit of protection from the afternoon sun. They grow well in average soil. Regular watering during dry spells when the soil feels dry to the touch encourages vigor. Plants grown in full sun or containers will require more frequent watering. Fertilize plants lightly in spring and early summer for maximum performance. 

Penny Yellow Blotch violas can thrive without much attention, but regularly snipping off spent flowers encourages constant blooms throughout the plant’s long growing season. You can also trim the plant to force more branching and a flush of growth, if desired.

Viola Penny™ Yellow Blotch Viola Spacing

Penny Yellow Blotch violas grow 4 to 6 inches tall with a spread of 6 to 8 inches. Allow each plant to have about 6 inches of space in the ground or in a container with plenty of drainage.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
