"Monkey-Faced Pansy" or "Orchid Pansy" - In the 1800's achimenes were as widely cultivated as the related African violets are today. Ideal pot plants due to their mounding or cascading habit, they are covered with 2 inch flowers from early spring to fall. The tubular or trumpet-shaped flowers have a broad face and are available in many jewel-like colors. Plant 5 to 6 of the scaly rhizomes in a 6 inch pot, give them light shade, keep them moist and enjoy. Also a good bedding plant for shady spots.

Height: 6"-15", Blooms: Summer, Zone: 10, Semi-shade to shade.
