Johnny Jump-Ups

Viola tricolor. With their mild, wintergreen-mint flavor, Johnny Jump-Up blossoms are a prized, decorative edible from olden days. Often the crowning ornamental touch on Victorian tea sandwich spreads, these diminutive flowers are also strewn on cheese platters and dessert plate rims, candied for cake garnish or frozen in ice cubes for summer drinks. Start them indoors ten to twelve weeks before the last spring frost date and transplant out. Perennial. Hardiness zones: 4-8. Spring- and summer-flowering. Height: 12". Check out our Edible Flower Garden on our Collections page.

Average seed life: 2 to 3 years.
