Violet, Sweet (Viola odorata), packet of 50 seeds, organic
Family: Violet (Violaceae)
Hardy to Zones 4 to 9
(Sweet Violet) Spreading evergreen perennial groundcover, fully frost hardy and preferring moist soils in the shade or part sun. This is a German cultivar with light blue flowers peaking in early spring that emit the delicate, singular and delightful scent of violets, which in full bloom wafts fleetingly across the garden. Traditional use (TWM): oral antiseptic, antitussive, resolvent. The germination of violet seed is a fairly long affair. Seed sown in the fall will germinate in the spring. Maintain flat in cool, shady conditions. Seed sown in the early spring may germinate later in the spring, or it may take until the following spring (12 months, more or less) to come up. I find them to be rewarding germinators, but if you want fast results, then it is better to start with plants.
