Jump-Up Johnny 'Helen Mount' is a vivid, tri-colored Viola that shines in the cooler months of the growing season (spring and fall). The fragrant dainty blooms appear very early in the season. Plants reseed readily and thrive in both the rock garden and the wild garden. If you cut them back in the summer, they'll flower again in the fall.
