Violet, Sweet (Viola odorata), packet of 20 seeds, organic

$4.95

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.  Space plants 1 foot apart–they will soon fill the interstices.

      Hello, I just received my seeds and wondering if I can plant the violet seeds under our large pines? Their branches are pretty high from the ground so believe they will get enough natural light however concerned about the acidic characteristic of the pine needles? Can I or rather Should I do this?? ;-))) Thanks so much, love your site and books!

      Hi Kristina, Yes, the site sounds allright, but I would plant these seeds in deep flats or pots, to afford more control, as they are slow germinators. richo
