Wild Violets (not blooming).

Wild Violet, also known as Common Blue Violet, is a small plant with purple/blue blooms. Height is only 3-8 in. Blooms March to June. Likes somewhat shady areas.


Wild Violets are a Host Plant for various fritillary butterflies

Fritilary butterflies such as the Great Spangled Fritillary and the Meadow Fritillary (Boloria bellona) use wild Violets as a host plant.


Where to buy Wild Violets

I once saw a place to buy from, I need to look it up again. Grows wild most places though.
