Birds & Blooms
1 Tiger Eye viola
VIOLA HYBRID, ZONES 4 TO 9
With distinct burgundy markings and dark veins on golden petals, these perennials live up to their name. A piece of garden art, they do best in full sun to partial shade. As a bonus, the vibrant flowers are fragrant and cold resistant. Plants get scraggly in summer; cut them back to encourage new blooms and divide them regularly.
Why we love it:
Each flower has gorgeous petals that are edible if they haven’t been treated with pesticides.
