Purple Violet is a small, versatile, hardy plant species perfect for welcoming the arrival of the first days of spring. This sweet flower grows well in USDA plant hardiness zones 3 through 9. It loves a mix of sunshine and shade. However, it will adjust and tolerate the full sun.
This plant is a native species of North America and naturally grows in woodland areas, meadows, and roadsides.
They are lovely low-growing flowers that stay short, generally reaching only a few inches tall. They are perfect companion plants that pair in front of an early-season garden border. Many gardeners pot them in containers in the coldest regions, specifically in zones 3 through 6. The pots enable the gardeners to pull the violets indoors for protection during a late-season frost.
Purple Violets Might Appear as Blue
Because the color is a cool-toned purple, the color of this flower may present as blue. It has heart-shaped leaves and bright, small, but incredibly pretty blue-violet, five-petalled flowers that bloom from late spring through early summer.
The flowers have a sweet, delicate scent similar to that of violets. They are a favorite of many for their subtle, pleasant aroma. The smell is a favorite of butterflies and bees.
It is a hardy, easy-to-care-for drought-, cold-, moisture, and shade-tolerant plant. They are undemanding and require minimal care.
- They need fertile soil with quick drainage. They need regular, light watering but don't want wet feet. Lightly damp ground is ideal.
- Deadhead the flowers as they fade throughout the season to encourage new growth and a steady supply of flowers.
- Mulch lightly around the flowers to help optimize the moisture.
Purple violets are hardy little flowers that will bring joy to your yard during the still-cool days of early spring.

violet rhizomes arrived well-packed and in excellent condition. They have been in the ground a week and all are sprouting leaves already. I ordered 5 rhizomes and as some were rather small, seller compensated by sending close to double the amount ordered. Very pleased with this seller! Highly recommend!
