Description

Originating from Eurasia, these sweet woodland perennials are a treat to the eye in early spring. The delicate scalloped leaves form a spreading rosette, eventually creating a large mat and the deep purple blooms are a welcome sight in spring. Medicinally, the leaves and flowers can be made into syrup for coughs, congestion and sore throats. Traditionally, it was a remedy for whooping cough. The flowers have a wonderful scent and are a great addition to a bath or skin wash. Tea from the whole plant is a long time remedy for headaches, body aches and digestive disturbances. Recent studies support its historic use as a popular cancer remedy and the essential oil from the flowers is used in perfumery. Lovely plant for the dappled shade garden. Violets like plenty of moisture and a rich soil but can tolerate a poorer site as long as it is not in full sun. Hardy perennial. Hardy to zone 5.

Latin Name Viola odorata
