Common Blue Violet

Common blue violet (Viola sororia) is a perennial flower that grows 3 to 8 inches tall. The blue to white five-petaled flowers grow ½ to ¾ inch wide with white to purple veins. Attached to common blue violets are the smooth green stalks that hold up the blooms. Common blue violets emerge in spring to last into early summer. The foliage is heart-shaped and grows up to 5 inches wide. Common blue violets are found growing in damp woods and moist meadows. They grow best in well-drained, moist soils. Plant in USDA hardiness zones 3 to 6.
