No longer available this season.
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)
