(Viola x wittrockiana) Unfortunately, none of the original pansies introduced in the 1800s by the Vilmorin Company of Paris still exist by their true names. Fortunately for gardeners, seedsman Kees Sahin kept a collection of 13,000 violas in the Netherlands. Through his incredible knowledge of historic varieties, Kees reassembled a mixture closely resembling the original “Bambini Mixture” from Vilmorin. The flowers are reminiscent of little smiling faces with distinct whiskers. Self-seeding biennial, 6-8″ tall.
Packet of 50 seeds.
