Labrador Viola

Labrador Viola

Viola labradorica

This little gem looks dainty but it hides incredible toughness behind this veneer of small size and delicate beauty. Small, round foliage emerges in early spring, purplish-green and showy forming a small, dense, spreading mound that is attractive without flowers. Combine the foliage color with the small, lavender violet flowers that begin to appear in early May and you have a colorful little package that butterflies love and that tolerates partial to full shade without missing a beat. This plant loves to be planted in groups toward the front of landscape areas or in small spaces, and even provides some fireworks when grown in a mixed container on a deck, and is an essential element to any American Beauties shade garden.
