Drought Smart Plants reply: you're kidding me, right? These are Pansies, which are grown everywhere as a spring and fall bedding plant.
They are related to Violets, and their botanical name is Viola wittrockiana or sometimes they also go by their older name of V. tricolor hortensis.
They flower in all combinations of colors you can imagine, sometimes two toned, like these, or dappled, with rippled edges, most often with the 'kitten face' design.
The two large petals at the top, with three lower ones is typical of the genus, and all violets will have some form of this.
They are normally sown from seed in the late summer, then planted out in the fall, to bloom in early spring, as they prefer cooler temperatures. They are not very drought tolerant, and tend to dwindle and die out in the heat of summer.
Happy Spring Gardening!
