Grown for their scent as much as for their old fashioned charm, these traditional violets are to be treasured. Now, not growing as freely in the wild as they used to, they can be easily grown at home. They prefer a semi shaded site where they will soon form quite large clumps, their fragrance has to be experienced. This one has double lilac-blue flowers borne freely from March-April. Easy and reliable they are a must for all lovers of traditional plants.
