Breathtaking, stunning and beautiful are three words to describe the Bambini Viola Mixture, although some can argue that these three words are not enough to fully describe the beauty that this mixture entails. Producing various colors of red violet and yellow, these delightful blooms balance both sass and class with their cute faces and whiskered petals. The plants grow to a mature height of roughly 6 to 8 inches tall, and display blue-green, attractive foliage as well.
Bambini Violas are considered to be an annual flowering plant in cooler areas of the States, and a tender perennial in warmer regions. The flowers are known to wilt with the heat of Summer, but blooms can be prolonged if they are placed in partial shade.
Grow Bambini Viola flowers directly in the garden, or add them to pots & containers, or even window boxes too. Their delightful flowers will attract all sorts of beneficial insects to the garden, such as butterflies, bumblebees and honeybees. Combine this beautiful mixture with other varieties of Pansies and Violas for an eye popping combination. Check out our Frizzle Sizzle Mixture and Fizzy Lemonberry Pansies.
Sowing The Seed
Bambini Viola flower seeds can be started indoors, or directly outdoors. If started indoors, sow seeds in peat pots, 1/16” under topsoil, 6 to 8 weeks prior to the last frost. Transplant when the weather becomes warm. Direct sow outdoors by clearing the sowing area of all unwanted plant life. Turn the soil or lay down new soil in it’s place. Scatter seeds to the ground.
Bambini Viola seeds & plants prefer an area of full sunlight in cooler regions or partial shade in warmer regions. They will tolerate a variety of soils but prefer the soil to be well drained. Water daily with a spray bottle or mist setting so that the soil is kept moist until germination has occurred. Avoid overwatering, or soaking the seeds as this can cause them to die.
Germination & Growth
Your seeds will begin to show signs of life within 7 to 14 days after sowing. The plants will grow to a mature height of about 6 to 8 inches tall and don’t mind being a little crowded. The plants can be spaced anywhere from 4 to 8 inches apart from one another. After they are fully established, you can begin to enjoy the colorful blooms, and the beautiful butterflies that they bring in.
