Viola ‘Black Magic’
at Digging Dog
Hailing from the world’s temperate regions, these endearing hardy selections are reliably perennial. They prosper in bright shade with fertile, well-drained and evenly moist soil.
Viola ‘Black Magic’
Touted as one of the darkest hued flowers in cultivation, this long blooming Viola will indeed work some magic wherever it’s planted. Each large, 1 in. wide edible flower possesses sumptuous jet black hues and a small sunny yellow eye that’s rimmed with violet above a compact, grassy green dainty-leafed clump. ‘Black Magic’s low growing heat tolerant habit promises oodles of blossoms throughout the cooler months, an autumn encore if trimmed back and renewed vigor following a September dividing.
Size: 6"–8" high x 6"–8" wide; hardy to zone 5.
Viola ‘Black Magic’ (P-1780)

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.
In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden! Digging Dog's mid March 2017 Newsletter Link
