More About Labrador Violet...

One from our 'Toe Tickler' Collection, Labrador Violet is a Viola that looks good all season long! The dark purple-green foliage of Labrador Violet serves as a perfect foil for the bright lavender blooms that cover the plant in from mid-spring into summer. It has rich dark purple foliage during the cool weather of spring and fall; as temperatures rise the color fades to a unique bronze-green. Plants flower sporadically all season long in regions with cool summers then re-bloom in the fall regardless of zone.

Viola labradorica is perfect for planting between pavers and stepping stones and spreads to form a good ground cover for shady areas. Cardinals and other song birds eat the seed and it is a larval food source for many fritillary butterflies.

Labrador Violet is easy to grow in cool, moist, shady environments. In the north, plants tolerate full sun but prefer part to full shade. In the South, afternoon sun is a must. If you want, shear plants back after the main flush of flowers to stimulate new blooms. Plants can also be cut back in early spring to remove winter-damaged foliage. Spreads by creeping stems and by self-seeding so plant in an area where this will not be a problem.
