This is the original Viola odorata, native to Europe and Asia. I have had many customers who are from Europe but live here now ask about this one. They remember the scent of their childhoods and want to rediscover it. It seems to them nothing else compares, and now I see what they mean. This beautiful blue violet is not only one of the most fragrant in the greenhouse, but it's one of the prettiest, too. The blooms are large so there is not only more to smell but more to admire. I'm so glad to have this one back on the violet list. Zones 4-9.
