A great woodland groundcover. Use Wood Violets in areas of heavy shade where you want to encourage naturalizing/spreading plantings. They will bloom in early spring (purple, lavender or white) for six to eight weeks. Wood Violets tend to go dormant in our hot, dry summers and will return in the fall to remain green the rest of the year. Variegated varieties are also available.
