Pansy 'Jolly Joker' F2 Hybrid

Viola x wittrockiana

Hardy Perennial

Jolly Joker, awarded the AAS Medal 1990 and the 1990 Fleuroselect Gold Medal, is probably the most spectacular pansy of its class. The intense orange of its lower petals, contrasts sharply with the deep purple of the upper petals. The effect is both unusual and intriguing. A very versatile and hardy variety which can be sown early for summer flowers or in summer for flowering in autumn and spring and even; in mild winters, through the winter. Height: 15-23cm (6-9in).

Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible. The crystallised petals are great decorations for cakes and cookies, or they can be added straight to green salads for an injection of colour. For more details about edible flowers click here.

Sow late winter/spring or mid-late summer 1.5mm (1/16in) deep in good seed compost excluding light as darkness is beneficial. Germination usually takes 14-21 days at 19-24C (65-75F). Keep the soil just moist and avoid high temperatures which prevent germination.

When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant and grow cool. Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions for 10-15 days before planting out after all risk of frost, 23-30cm (9-12in) apart in most soils, sun or part shade.

Summer sowings should be moved to a coldframe and planted out in autumn or early spring.
