Downy Wood Violet

DOWNY WOOD VIOLET (Viola pubescens)

My favourite violet! Large-leaved with eye-catching yellow flowers, it makes a great ground cover for rich, dry to medium woods. Best for areas with low competition. Grows with sun-loving sedge, star-flowered false solomon’s seal, Canada mayflower and baneberry.
