are they an edible flower, or can you use them in place of violets in jelly? i notice if you pull out the bloom just right, there is a sweet drop of nectar.

I have never ever come across them on any edible plant lists. While that one drop of nectar may be sweet & not kill you, that doesn't mean eating the rest of the flower won't.

If in doubt, leave it out. Sorry.
