Viola sororia Freckles

The tiny flowers of Viola sororia Albiflora are a must to brighten up a dull patch of soil. The white form of the woolly violet, these little violas have 2cm wide pure white flowers, held above handsome dark green leaves. They were awarded the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit in 2002, so you can be sure of a good performance. This is a white form of the woolly violet and is wonderfully easy to grow in pots and borders. For good companions why not have a look at our full range of beautiful herbaceous perennials?

Growing up to 20cm tall, with a spread of 30cm, they won't take up much room and will happily cope with conditions ranging from full sun to partial shade, flowering from April to July.

Great In Your Garden...

The white violet is easy to grow, so is ideal for beginners and children - especially as it grows well in pots, large containers and troughs, looking wonderful with spring bulbs, especially daffodils.

They are ideal for a wildlife or naturalistic woodland-style garden, as wild violets are used to living with dappled shade. Pollinators will love those single flowers as much as you do.

Use Albiflora in semi-shady borders as underplanting with spring bulbs - the long flowering period will both complement the flowers and will continue on into July, hiding the dying bulb foliage.

They are also excellent ground cover under shrubs and roses, creating an area of interest instead of bare soil and have an important role to play in a white garden.

Use the flowers as posies in tiny vases or jugs with daffodils to brighten up your home.
