Hi Shelagh ,

Yes -the Habranthus are easy !
watering from April until September - than dry
in summer they in our garden on a rain protectet place -in winter in my greenhouse ( with a minimum temp. of +5° )
I have received my plants before many years from a friend - but they are sold in nurseries and gardencenter
- mostly as Habr. robustus
This plants makes no seeds ...I dont not why

Beautifully grown Viola, Hans.  Getting all the flowers to stand up like that is impressive.  Certainly hard to do that in our climate.  ;D  Excellent Habranthus clump too. 8)

Great pics.
Cheers.

Min winter temp -8 or -9°C. Max summer temp 40°C. Thankfully, maybe once or twice a year only.

Hi Paul ,

nice to hear from you !
This Viola is simply for me - it is a hybrid - bought last year from a nursery .
It has a very nice fragrance ( similar like V.odorata )
