RE: Violet

Hi Yasuko,

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!

RE: Violet

Hello Mike,

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.

RE: Violet

My V. chaerophylloides flowers are pink and white.

RE: Violet

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.

RE: Violet

Hello Yasuko,
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?
