Viola, Psychedelic Spring is rated 2.2 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Pretty! They look fantastic in my hanging basket. Grew them from seed, got almost all 25 to germ. Planted them all in one basket and it's full and very pretty. I only gave it four stars as I don't quite get the color variation I was expecting from the picture they advertise. Mostly purple and pink, no orange:( Oh well, they still look great! Sorry if the picture is is saved right side up, but the upload turned it sideways.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Germinated, then died The sprouts were spindly and not meant for starting indoors. All died before their true leaves- if I had the chance again, would just sprinkle on the dirt outside and let them go. If they're like jump-ups though, be prepared for psychedelic volunteers...

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as pictured Mine arrived smashed and all the flowers are solid purple, no white around the edges or different shades of purple like the picture shows. Boring.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very drought tolerant! These little flowers are spectacular in color! They performed well in direct sun and a southern exposure on side of my garage.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not so colorful... I have to concur with the previous commenter. I planted these seeds in the hopes of beautiful pink flowers, but was highly disappointed. The color of the Psychedelic Spring violas is nothing like what the picture would have you think. The color is actually quite dull, and I would recommend you against purchasing them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not so Psychedelic My little flowers do not look anything like the picture used to advertize "Psychedelic Spring Viola. My camera could only capture a few of the blossoms in the scope of the frame, but all of the blossoms are similar to the ones you see here....just purple. Regular little Johnny Jump Ups would have been cuter.
