Sweet Violet: Viola odorata and Viola banksia (syn Viola hederacea)
Also known as wood violet sweet violet, English violet, common violet, florist's violet, or garden violet.
They spread via seed and runners to form a green groundcover of heart-shaped leaves, often coming up in unexpected places in the garden.
Violets flower best in part-sun, but will grow in full sun or full shade and prefer moist soil.
Bunches of violets great winter posies.
Cut them in the morning or evening; dipping the bunch of flowers head down into a large bowl of water to soak for a while will extend their vase life, as will spraying a fine mist of water over the flowers when they are in their vase.
Native violets, Viola banksia, have no scent, but flower in a similar fashion.
Flowers are edible.
Grows and spreads by rhizomes. Full sun or part shade.
