Spread 8-10 in/20-25 cm. Extra short plant stems, thicker purple flower petals to resist curling.
Grower tested and selected throughout northern USA, Canada and Europe to provide extra short plant stems, thicker flower petals to resist curling. A better base branching plant habit that resists stretching and produces earlier spring flowers per plant. Spring Matrix is very uniform and has superior performance under short daylength during late spring conditions which provides better flower production for earlier sales.


Hybrid pansies and giant flowered violas grow faster than regular types. For May blooms, sow Jan. 15th. - Feb. 20th. 1 oz/28 g sows 8 (12 x 20 in/31 x 51 cm) flats at 700 seedlings per flat. Pre-cool seed at 35 - 40°F/2 - 4°C for 24 hrs. Cover seed lightly with sand or Jiffy Mix. Cover flat (needs darkness for germination) with paper and plastic. Soil temp. 70 - 75°F/21 - 24°C at seed level (bottom heat). Average germination in soil 60 - 70% in 10 days. Use low acid soil (pH) when transplanting. Grow seedlings at 45 - 50°F/7 - 10°C for better growth. For larger spring blooms, sow by July 5th, keep cool and moist, then transplant Aug. 15th. into raised and fresh soil beds, keep weeded. Cover with straw mulch during winter. Giant hybrid violas are a bit hardier than the pansies.
