Description

Harvested from the gardens at Monticello.
Amethyst Flower, or Bush Violet, will produce an airy mass of tiny, amethyst-blue flowers throughout the summer in garden beds or containers.  Named after Johan Browallius (1707-1755), a Swedish botanist, physician, and bishop, this self-seeding, South American species was introduced into cultivation in 1735, and was recommended by Philadelphia nurseryman Bernard McMahon in The American Gardener's Calendar (1806).

Sow seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost date at 70 degrees F.  Transplant to 6-packs or small pots once they have several true leaves, then harden off and plant outdoors after the last frost.  Approximately 25-30 seeds per packet.
