    From April until July, blue-violet flowers open above neat clumps of leaves which resemble a bird's foot with the outer toes again parted. The specific epithet pedatifida means "pedately-cleft" in botanical Latin.

    Strong sprays of sizeable, deep purple, early spring flowers open amongst long, thin, arrow-shaped leaves in late spring and early summer. Soundly perennial and dying down to a winter bud resting underground, this is the true rare Chinese form of this most attractive flower. ... Learn More



    White-eyed bright blue flowers open over an extended period on this lovely viola from the Chilean Andes. Very rarely offered, this semi-shrubby plant is one of the few large violas in Chile, most others being small plants rarely exceeding 20 cm.

    This rare, and surprisingly hardy Brazilian violet grows at altitude, where it exists in wet rocky cracks forming low, stoloniferous, slowly spreading, octopus-like plants, which root as they touch the ground. In time this becomes a large colony producing an endless display of short stemmed creamy-white flowers above oval, hairy leaves. Picture is buds only, sorry! ... Learn More
