Viola (Violet) are a group of annual and perennial flowers native primarily to the Northern Hemisphere, but does not include African violets which are members of another genus.
Preferred growing conditions:
Plant Viola in compost enriched, acidic loam. Perennial Sweet Violet is best positioned in a full to partial shade locations. Bedding Violas like full sun to partial shade.
Mulch with common mulch materials in dry Western climates. Leave un-mulched in moister Eastern climates.
Water regularly the first growing season to establish the plant. Sweet Violet like regular irrigation to keep the soil moderately moist. Bedding Viola need regular summer irrigation, too.
Deadheading the plants will prolong blooming and prevent unwanted seedlings.
Fertilize lightly in the fall with a half and half mix of Yum Yum Mix and good quality compost. Supplement that with the addition of soil sulfur if foliage is looking chlorotic (yellow).
Sweet violets are semi-evergreen and should not be cut back too hard in spring. A light trimming to remove winter-damaged foliage is sufficient.
