Viola cornuta Quicktime is a totally new series bred for faster flowering on a well-branched, full-bodied plant. With reduced daylength sensitivity, it flowers two weeks faster than comparable series on the market. This allows many new options, such as, sowing your Viola crop two weeks later while still shipping on time for Spring, or filling late orders due to shorter crop time.
