Viola Sweet White Violets are perennial wildflowers native to the eastern United States and Canada. In the wild, they spread to form large carpets on the forest floor, with white flowers on single stalks emerging in spring. Deep green heart-shaped leaves persist throughout the summer. It’s worth finding a spot for these easy-care, fragrant flowers in the shade garden. (Viola blanda)

Q & A

Plant With These:

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
