I’ve been searching for a dainty white flower to help “pop” some light under the dark crimson mums and a deep burgundy Loropetalum Rubrum. Voilà! Violas at the local nursery would do the trick. A couple of flats of Penny White violas help to catch sun rays where before was deep darkness.These petite flowers are pretty tough though. They are heat and cold tolerant. They are also delicious to slugs and snails; so a good sprinkling of Sluggo was provided to all 72 transplants.I’m looking forward to enjoying these very low maintenance plants until “swamp pants” weather rolls around again. Until then, we’ll both be thriving in the garden.
