Common Blue Violet (Seeds)
The Common Blue Violet, Viola sororia or Viola papilionacea is a highly variable wildflower. It is the earliest violet to bloom in the spring and can be found in woodlands, meadows and even lawns. Also known as the common meadow violet, hooded violet, lesbian flower, wood violet and woolly blue violet, the leaves of the common blue violet are important food for caterpillars of fritillary butterflies. These also are favored foods of a variety of wildlife from deer to rabbits to white-footed mice. 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 colored, large flowered cultivars. The terms "viola" and "violet" are normally reserved for small-flowered annuals or perennials. 60-70 days.
