Extra-large flowered Viola Grandissimo makes an impressive entrance to Earley Ornamentals’ portfolio

Leading independent producer and supplier of young plants Earley Ornamentals, has increased interest in its Viola range following the launch of eight new novelty colours to its Viola Grandissimo collection.
Eight new novelty colours

Introduced this summer, the new Viola Grandissimo, has already proved itself to be a winner. Just as its name suggests this new variety has a large, striking flower of about 5cm and is offered in eight new novelty colours:

Berry Pie Yellow Jump Up Purple Glow
Rose with Blotch Clear Yellow Lemon Splash
Icy Blue Deep Orange  
The flowers of Grandissimo are larger than your average Viola and produce in profusion, so it looks fantastic in patio containers, whether as a single display of colour or co-ordinated with other shades. With a neat and tidy plant habit, Grandissimo is also a great product for pots, hanging baskets or packs.

On-trend purple proving popular

The range’s rich on-trend colours are proving popular, especially the deep purple colours of Purple Glow and Berry Pie. Commenting on the success of this recent introduction, Earley Ornamentals’ managing director Simon Earley said: “Viola Grandissimo has been really well received by our customers. Our Earley experts have been on-hand to offer advice where it’s needed and tailor production to each customer’s needs.


“With a total of 169 colours and mixes in our Earley Pansy and Viola’ offer now, the range is expanding all the time thanks to our progressive programme of ongoing investment, innovation and development and we’re already looking at next year’s varieties and colours.”
