The Viola Purple, Viola sororia or Viola papilionacea is a highly variable wildflower is the earliest violet to bloom in the spring and can be found in woodlands, meadows and even lawns. It can be distinguished from the many other species of violets because only the two side petals are "bearded" (having a row of white hairs) and the lower petal is longer. Most species are found in the temperate Northern Hemisphere. Some Viola species are perennial plants. In horticulture the term "pansy" is normally used for those multi-coloured, large-flowered cultivars.The terms "viola" and "violet" are normally reserved for small-flowered annuals or perennials Viola reichenbachiana. 60-70 days.

    Planting and Harvesting Tips:
    Start indoors 3-4 weeks before the last frost of spring. Transplant outside after the soil has warmed to 65˚ to 75˚F. Sow one inch deep and space 12-18 inches apart in rows 3-4 feet apart. Plants prefer full sun and moist soil with plenty of organic matter.
    Harvest daily with a sharp knife during hot weather — pods taste best when young and grow quickly past the stage of prime eating. Wear gloves and long sleeves for protection from spines.


    Green Thumb Tip
    Sow seeds outdoors when the soil has warmed. Tolerant of heat and drought, but not of cold. Keep well picked for higher yields.
