I was at the nursery last week looking for a burst of fall color to put in my copper planter boxes that line the brick walls on my back patio when these beauties caught my attention. They are Sorbet Black Duet Violas and when I saw them, I was hooked.
The Sorbet varieties tolerate cold weather better than other violas and here in the hills where the temperatures can get pretty chilly, that's important to me. The plants are compact and are ideal for edgings or containers. Plus, they just look so cheery and lighthearted to me. Since I planted them, every time I'm out on the back patio (like every single day), they simply make me smile :)
