Violet Columbine, Viola 'Columbine', scents the air with fragrant white flowers flushed and streaked with violet-blue.
Viola 'Columbine' blooms profusely in late spring through early summer. This plants blooms all summer long in Michigan!
This columbine is a vigorous grower which grows well in either sun or shade. The compact habit makes this an excellent variety for rock gardens!
Violets grow best in cool, moist, shady environments. In the north, plants can tolerate full sun but prefer partial to full shade.
Shade from deciduous trees is ideal because the plants growing below receive full sun in the spring, followed by protection from the harsh summer sun once the trees get their leaves.
If plants are cut back after the first bloom cycle, they will likely bloom again in the fall.
This Columbine is deer resistant and it attracts hummingbirds and butterflies. Use this plant in containers, cut flowers, borders, and as a groundcover.
The violet-blue blooms will just ‘pop’ in about any garden scene!
