The Viola genus of flowering plants is in the violet family Violaceae. It is the largest genus in the family, containing between 525 and 600 species. Most species are found in the temperate Northern Hemisphere; however, some are also found in widely divergent areas such as Hawaii, Australasia, and the Andes.

Pansy (syn. Viola × wittrockiana) Frizzle Sizzle Blue is part of the Frizzle Sizzle Series and offers bright deep blue ruffled flowers beautifully marked with a brown blotch. Plants are early blooming. Colder temperatures will result in more pronounced ruffles.

A cottage garden flower if ever there was, the Viola differs from the Pansy in having smaller flowers on more compact plants and in being very free-flowering. They will start blooming in early spring and, if dead-headed regularly, will continue far into the autumn - indeed, one enthusiast writing as long ago as 1908 mentions picking flowers on Christmas Day. Exceptionally hardy and trouble-free.
