Hello, Viola lovers!
It is quite cold today,but spring is coming little by little...
My (Japanese) violet started blooming from 19/Mar.
Another violets are not blooming yet...
Good to hear from you, especially with news of new flowers opening - always a cheery sight.
Of my Japanese violets:
Today, the first flower opened on my Viola mandschurica. V. chaerophylloides was a few days earlier.
Both of these are in a cold greenhouse.
Your photo makes the plant look very lush - good enough to eat!
Your Viola is blooming too!
In my neighbour there (I guess it) is V.mandshurica. I don't notice if it is flowering now or not... I have to check tomorrow.
Which color in your V. chaerophylloides? Mine was very pale pink.(it is gone...)
You can see only the violet is blooming.
My V. chaerophylloides flowers are pink and white.
Must be nice,Mike!
You can enjoy a plant twice, pink and white!
V.sororia 'Freckles' are blooming now.
Can you see the 'Freckles'?
Full of flowers V.yedoensis f.albescens.
Thank you for your lovely photos. I agree with Mike, your violets do look good enough to eat! Is there a tradition in Japan of using violet blossoms and leaves for culinary purposes?
