Viola tricolor, also known as Johnny Jump up (though this name is also applied to similar species such as the yellow pansy), heartsease, heart's ease, heart's delight, tickle-my-fancy, Jack-jump-up-and-kiss-me, come-and-cuddle-me, three faces in a hood, or love-in-idleness, is a common European wild flower, growing as an annual or short-lived perennial.
As some of its names imply, heartsease has a long history of use in herbalism. It has been recommended, among other uses, for epilepsy, asthma, skin diseases, and eczema. V. tricolor has a history in folk medicine of helping respiratory problems such as bronchitis, asthma, and cold symptoms.

Germination; Spring sow for flowers the same year. Autumn sow for flowers the following year. Autumn sow under glass. Fill a pot with 90% compost 10% sand. Sow 2mm deep and cover lightly with soil. Ideal temp. 22°C. If seed germinates straight away transplant otherwise seed will be dormant but ready to germinate the following spring. Spring sowing as above, if seeds have not germinated in 2-4 weeks cold stratify. Move to 4°C. for 6-8 weeks then return to warmth at 10°C. Germination can be erratic. When seedlings have 2 true leaves transplant to 8cm pots. Grow on for a year before finally planting out with 20cm spacing.
Growing; Prefers a humus-rich, moist but well-drained soil in full or partial sun. Water well until established. Violas are cool weather plants, they thrive in full sun due to the light offered rather than the heat given. High temperatures can be offset with regular watering and a mulch to prevent the tubers from drying out. Requires little attention.
Cultivation; Remove spent flowers to encourage further blooms. Will self-seed.
