Viola sororia 'Freckles' seeds!!
In early summer, I had purchased 3 of these plants (at least that is what they were labeled as and they were on sale) and I planted all 3 in a round 15" diameter shallow plastic bowl planter. They had pretty much finished their blooms by then but they kept a nice lush growth of foliage. The foliage is slowly starting to droop now that it has gotten cooler and low and behold, what do I find? Seeds!
Now granted, I know for you Viola officiandos, this is par for the course, but this is my first time growing violets in a container as a perennial (after many years of pansies and viola tricolor in containers and growing up with wild violets out in the yard of the house I grew up in). I've never actually seen seeds on a violet before and this was the neatest thing to find! I am not really a seed person but this find made it sortof worth keeping a big bowl of foliage around....lol
