Bird's Foot Violets are an Early Blooming Ground Cover Perennial
Each of the dark green leaves reaches lengths between ¾ and 2 inches, and they are segmented into three to five on a stem. The stem itself may reach 6 inches in diameter. The clumped plant works best in the well-drained and somewhat dry soil to prevent the roots from rotting, and they thrive in partial to full sun; however, they cannot tolerate a full day of sun. When spaced about four to 6 inches apart, the plant thrives, and they're particularly fond of rocky or poor soil, which makes them a real gem for some particularly challenging landscape situations. They reach a height of between 3 and 10 inches at maturity. Bird's Foot Violets are early bloomers and herald the beginning of spring in March and April. When in full bloom, they typically present with beautiful light to dark purple petals that encircle the orange center, but they also produce various blues to white and bi-color petals. Each bloom consists of five petals, and the flower itself is about 2 inches in diameter.
Bird's Foot Violets are Particularly Fond of Rocky or Poor Soil Conditions
It stands to reason since Florida's soil was notoriously waterlogged in the early days. Although the Bird's Foot Violet is not an invasive variety, it doesn't necessarily play well with others. Bird's Foot Violets seem to prefer to stand alone in its stately elegance to be admired. When you have such an adaptable beauty that's relatively pest-resistant, it's easy to overlook the Bird's Foot Violet's tendency to be a loner. Besides, it gives you a much better picture of its spectacular blooms.
