Prairie Violet has blue/purple flowers (depending who you ask) that have 5 petals and grows in clumps. This is not the common violet, which is still lovely, but an important species all of its own.
Grows best in drier soils, in partial shade to full sun. Flowers appear early in the spring and last into early summer for us.
Important Larval Host Plants for multiple Fritillary butters.
Makes a nice companion plant for apple trees as it is fully done with its bloom and growth by the time most apples are ready to harvest.
Package of 3 bare root plants.
