Violet or 'Viola' are easy care compact perennials that bring that classic, cottage style to your garden. There are many varieties of violet and some can be annuals, short-lived, or true perennials. Garden Crossings has chosen the true perennial type violets that will reward you with their blooms from late spring to early summer with intermittent re-bloom throughout the whole season. Grown best in evenly moist, rich soil, Violets are happy in woodland settings in some shade or in sun with adequate moisture. Enjoy them planted in mass, as border plants, or in containers.
