A fabulous and easy plant to grow anywhere in the shady garden, as long as it isn't too dry.
Deep green fresh, shallowly serrated lanceolate leaves are present from early spring until late autumn and form mats of growth. The centre of each leaf has a deep brown/maroon marking making it very unique in the viola family. The flowers are the usual Viola type in shape and on a good sized plant huge numbers are produced as soon as the last frosts of spring are past. Flower colour is a pale pink and a sweet scent is also present. Tends to form a clump and doesn't spread.
