Nick, see your pansy thread where I have extolled the virtues of violas - luvvemtobits!!!
They'll keep going all winter and through the next spring, and if you take care of them you can even keep them for several years and take cutting, not to mention collecting and sowing seeds from them.
Superb little smiley faces grinning up at us from the terrace outside our dining room door - and some of them have such gorgeous scents - bury your nose in them when they've been sitting in a patch of warm winter sun - mmmmmmmmmmmmm
