Viola x Wittrockiana, Pansy - Clear Crystal Black

£0.95

Clear black pansy flowers.

A hybrid species of garden origin, there are many named forms selected for their ornamental value.

A very ornamental plant. If the plants are cut back after flowering they will flower again in late summer.

Prefers a cool moist well-drained humus-rich soil in partial or dappled shade and protection from scorching winds. Tolerates sandstone and limestone soils but becomes chlorotic if the pH is too high.

Edible uses

Young leaves and flower buds - raw or cooked. When added to soup they thicken it in much the same way as okra.
Flowers - raw.
A tea can be made from the leaves.
