Comments: Violets grow where there is a generous amount of humus in the soil such as is found in forests and woodlands. They have been grown for many years in old gardens of the South. In addition to being nice surprise plants in naturalistic sites violets were once popular border plants in early gardens. They do not grow well in disturbed sites where the topsoil has been removed or interrupted. They do best in a moist, fertile soil with a lot of organic matter incorporated into the bed.
