Viola are nostalgic in any garden. Some are sweetly scented, others jump up in surprising spots, and all offer glorious spring color. Delightfully happy in woodland settings in some shade, or in sun with adequate moisture.
Prefers evenly moist compost-rich soil. Can be pinched back before flowering to prevent legginess. Can be divided every 3 years in spring or fall. Shear back by 1/2 after bloom to freshen foliage. Remove seed heads to prevent prolific seeding. May benefit from watering during dry spells. Old foliage can be cut back in fall.
