This edible flower was one of the first cultivated plants that showed me the wonders of growing. I brought home Johnny Jump-Ups from nursery school and planted them at the base of our crab apple tree in our front yard. They grew, and spread, self-seeded and came back year after year. I still think back to that childhood memory each year when we plant cool-tolerant violas in celebration of spring.

How to Grow

Easy to grow early-season blooms can be directly sowed by scattering seeds in a cultivated patch, either in late fall or early spring. Johnny Jump Ups will grow in a variety of conditions--from partial sun to full sun, and even in dry conditions. Plant under trees or in any bare area of the garden. Does well in low maintenance container gardens as well. Self-sows and comes back year after year early spring.
