Viola labradorica

Violet

Lovely blue-violet flowers in the spring and dark bronze-green foliage that add interest through the seasons. It only spreads moderately. If you have a large space to fill and little patience, plant a few of these around. The burgundy foliage is a nice contrast with the pale blue flowers and before you know it, they will spread around. Just about anywhere you plant them will make them happy.
