Viola labradorica 'Purpurea'


Availability : Available

Description :

Like a Convolvulus, but beautiful as well.

Native to the east coast of the United States, from Florida to Greenland, Viola labradorica grows in damp habitats under trees, light woodland and along the edges of ditches.

If it was not so pretty, we might consider it a nuisance as it spreads so quickly and limitlessly.

Viola labradorica 'Purpurea' produces a mass of purple green foliage and a profusion of violet-blue, pleasantly scented flowers in April-May.

Grow in sunlight (but not direct) or in partial shade in ordinary soil. Height: 10 cm.

Perfect under trees, at the base of shrubs or to decorate a shady bank.

At the nursery we planted this violet in a gravel garden among the thymes, Sedum and Stipa... and they all get along together marvellously!

Planted in mass as the only ground cover for paving or over a bank its foliage is very effective.
