|~ Viola cornuta ~|
They grow wild in my yard & I'm constantly digging up wee plants & moving them to where there are holes in my flower beds. They transplant very easily & you can eat the flowers!
I tried a violet syrup (made with honey) but found it much too sweet & just not what I was looking for. The blooms can be used in desserts, on cakes & cookies or scones & my choice of use is for tea.
