Viola walteri does well in a alpine house. Plants in the garden look a little bit unhappy.
With thanks to Véronique!

A new viola, named for Marcela Ferreyra -  who writes:
 "Today is a very happy day in my life as I have been gifted a Viola!!!!. So besides Chocolina ( my little dog!) I have another bb named Viola marcelaferreyrae.
    Many thanks Marcela Nicola for your huge show of love and generosity!!!. I love Rosuladas and having a species with my name is like a dream.
    I dedicate this to my father who was my first example of a Naturalist marking my life forever."

The honor is so fitting, given Marcela's love of the flora of her country and the enthusiasm she shares with everyone who travels with her.
