Purple variety


Variety of violet


The species of violet from which the breeders started to obtain the large and showy pansies, which we admire today in many gardens, certainly do not have such showy flowers and so striking blooms; however they are pleasant ornamental plants and often more resistant than the hybrid relatives, being mostly perennial endemic plants in most of Europe; moreover, usually the flowers of non-hybrid violets are very fragrant. If we want to get some seeds it is good to remember that the colored flowers of some varieties are sterile, the seeds grow in insignificant inflorescences, often completely without petals.
