Shades of Viola

Viola 'Velour Frosted Chocolate' at Blackhawk Hardware at Park Road Shopping Center in Charlotte, NC

Smooth and silky as Swiss milk chocolate?  Or more like muddy, indecisive and ugly? What do you think of this cultivar? It was new to me, but I've never met a viola I didn't like—I love it. In person it's even prettier; the flowers really do look textured like velour or velvet. How about a few of these in a windowsill pot with a baby bronze fennel and some golden marjoram? I think yes.
