Viola grypoceras exilis ‘Sylettas’


Silver Korean Violet

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.545.550


(=Viola koreana) An unusual species of Viola, grown mostly for the attractive foliage. It forms a small tuft or mound of rounded green leaves, with incredibly intricate silver markings and veining. Short stems of lavender-purple flowers are a bonus in spring. A highly textural plant for edging, and in the woodland or shady rock garden. Be on the watch for slugs. Evergreen in mild winter regions. Looks beautiful combined planted with the Japanese Painted Fern. This species is not a troublesome self seeder. Clumps may be easily divided in early autumn or after flowering.
