Viola hederacea – Baby Blue
Viola hederacea – ‘Baby Blue’
A cute ground cover growing to 5cm tall and spreading via runners so able to colonise large sections of the garden. It has small, round foliage and lovely blue to lilac flowers that bloom throughout the year.
It is a lovely plant to grow in shaded areas of the garden like under mature trees or in areas shaded by the house for most of the year. They can form a thick covering on the ground so make a lovely ornamental lawn in low traffic areas.
It should be planted in full to part shaded areas in moist, well drained soils.
