A striking little violet with white flowers boldly centred a rich purple. Summer flowering. Low spreading habit with distinct rounded leaves. Shelter, 15cm. Sun or light shade.

Very pretty and worth a little extra thought over placement, Viola hederacea is a little less hardy than more common species and needs a sheltered site, perhaps next to a building or under a shrub. When happy it will make a good semi-evergreen carpet and a mass of flowers from early summer to autumn.

From eastern Australia, Tasmania and north island New Zealand.

Viola sororia 'Priceana' (clump forming) is sometimes mis-sold as this species.
