Viola sororia or common blue violet is a species native to the woodlands of eastern North America.
The Viola sororia 'Albiflora' variety has remarkable ornamental qualities for which it gained an Award of Garden Merit in 2002:
- it is easy to grow in the sun or light shade in a rockery environment;
- free flowering in solitary, pure white, unscented blooms in April-May,
- shiny bright evergreen, heart-shaped leaves,
- stoloniferous growth and self-seeding which makes it good for ground cover.
In the garden we use it as small ground cover under deciduous shrubs, in shady borders or a moist rockery.
