Viola sororia is an eastern Northern America native. In Canada, one can find it in all provinces, from Newfoundland to British Columbia, and in the Northwest Territory. Natural habitats include moist to mesic black soil prairies, open woodlands, woodland edges, savannas, and wooded slopes along rivers or lakes. In developed areas, it can be found in lawns, city parks, moist waste areas, and along hedges or buildings. The widespread blue species is the state flower of Illinois, Rhode Island, New Jersey, and Wisconsin.

Common name(s): Confederate Violet

All our plants are supplied in at least 9x10cm pots. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants planted in bigger pots at the same time. We do not sell 'plug plants' because those need to be grown on before planting. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant. We grow everything we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside.
