Smaller than Viola koreana, this tiny plant from North America has dappled and variegated small olive green leaves and short stems bearing very early, reflexed, deep violet flowers. This small jewel should have a place in every shady garden or trough.
For best results, sow immediately onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. They can be sown at any time, and germination can sometimes be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. We sow most seeds in an unheated greenhouse and wait for natural germination, as many seeds have built-in dormancy mechanisms, often waiting for natural spring germination, hence giving them a full season of growth.
