Dainty-flowered violas are becoming increasingly popular, more and more people prefer them to the bigger and brighter flowers of so many pansies.

'Moonbeam' is one of a small group of semi-trailing varieties which are delightful in baskets, it looks lovely with one of the less vigorous silver helichrysums like H. petiolare 'Goring Silver'.

Few gardeners realise that 'Moonbeam', along with its bright yellow counterpart 'Sunbeam' and the prettily whiskered 'Felix', also make very pretty ground cover in the front of borders in small gardens.

Type: Grow as a half-hardy annual
Height: 4-6in/10-15cm. trailing habit
Season: Early summer to first frosts
Situation: Hanging baskets, window boxes and tubs; also at the front of borders. Sun or partial shade, good soil.
