The "Corsican Violet" is a naturally occurring
species native to The Mediterranean area. These beautiful Violas
are extremely hardy, and easy to grow. Corsican Violas are heat and drought
tolerant as well as winter hardy in Colorado. They are an
excellent choice for rock gardens, beds, or mixed containers. Corsican Violets may surprise you
the following season with
some new volunteers, as the plant may re-seed itself.
Plant Corsican Viola in any well drained fertile soil in full sun to partial
shade. Space plants 6" to 8" apart depending on how
quickly you want the area to fill in. Feed monthly with a balanced liquid fertilizer.
Potential pests ~ diseases: Aphids or mildews.
