Viola hederacea
What is it?

The Australian native violet
is a creeping, evergreen
perennial, growing no more
than 10cm in height. Viola
hederacea spreads widely
into a dense mat by trailing
stolons that root out at the
nodes. Leaves are a bright
green in colour and kidney-
shaped and the purple and
white flowers appear on erect
stems mainly in the warmer months of the year. Preferring a cool and shady position, it
grows best in consistently moist soil.


Where do they occur?

Viola hederacea grows in most areas of
eastern and southern Australia particularly
in moist and shady locations.
