|Seed saver's jackpot - a full pod of viola seeds! |
This species from Romania is supposed to have deep green leaves and reddish purple flowers. The plants we grew from seed are now in their second year and blooming; the leaves check out, but the flowers are decidedly blue. Very nice, but I can't be certain of the identity.
This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...

|cad@transcena||Mar 19, 2012||Hi Rob, these are definitely viola jooi. They have a pinkish tinge. Very variable and some plants more pinkish than others. They have very scented flowers and should self-seed a lot. Hardy to zone 3. They are known here as Hungarian violets.
I would like to use your excellent pics for a power point on wild edibles. I will credit your name/website.|
Thanks for confirming. Unfortunately, they didn't self-seed for me, so they expired from our garden a few years ago.
