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

(2 customer reviews)


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.

    100% germination with indoor stratification!

    I received my seeds on Jan. 29, put them in a tepid soak on Jan. 30, then put them in a little slightly damp coco coir in my refrigerator to stratify. Today, Feb. 8, every single seed has a small root emerging and is ready to pot up. This is definitely good quality seed… now the rest is up to me. I look forward to putting these violets in my shady under-plantings in the spring!
