Viola ‘Endurio Sky Blue Martien’ joins gaillardia ‘Mesa Yellow,’ snapdragon ‘Twinny Peach and zinnia ‘Zahara Starlight Rose’ as 2010 All-America Selections (AAS) Winners. ‘Endurio Sky Blue Martien’ is AAS’s 2010 Cool Season award winner.
‘Endurio Sky Blue’ greets gardeners with a burst of clear blue. This unique spreading/mounding viola looks delicate, but it delivers tough-as-nails performance in the garden.
In mild southern regions, it flowers throughout the winter, laughing off wind, rain, cold temperatures and passing snowfalls. In northern temperate climates, it dazzles gardeners with two-season color–flowering well after first frost when planted in autumn and once again in spring after snow has melted and soil has warmed.
‘Endurio Sky Blue’ can also be planted in early spring, covering planters and landscapes with sky blue blooms well into summer. Delicate 0.75-inch flowers cover plants in beautiful sky blue. Spreading/mounding plants grow to 6 inches tall and 10-12 inches wide, creating a bright spot in any garden. It is also perfectly suited to window boxes and hanging gardens, as well as balcony and patio planters.
