I’ve been harvesting violets for a few days, they are also in healing the heart of heart ache
Viola odorata ‘MIRACLE Intense Blue’ – A great choice for a vigorous woodland groundcover featuring dark violet-purple flowers (from late winter into spring) with heady fragrance. It is a semi-evergreen perennial with dark green heart-shaped foliage. Tolerates a sun exposure with even soil moisture. Edible flowers. Grows 4-6″ high by 12″+ wide. Hardy to zone 5.
Viola x ‘Etain’ – A hybrid perennial pansy with striking lemon yellow fragrant blooms (about 1-1.5″ across) edged in lavender-purple. These are borne from late spring into summer, and sporadically through to October. ‘Etain’ is best grown in part to full sun and cut back lightly when the plant gets leggy. Thrives in cooler summers. Grows 6-8″ high by 8-10″ wide. Zone 5.
