Excellent Quality Review by J | Zone: 6b
Excellent quality violas!! I planted these violas in the late summer. We have had the coldest and snowiest winter in recent history here. After removing 5 inches of snow from them, I found these violas greening up and putting out leaves in late February! (Posted on 2/26/2010)
