This splendid selection of our US native Viola pedata comes from native plant pioneer, the late Dr. Don Jacobs of Decatur, Georgia. Viola pedata 'Eco Artist Palette' makes a small clump (3" tall x 3" wide) composed of finely dissected leaves that resemble...what else, bird's feet. The tight clumps of Viola pedata are topped with pansy-like flowers in April/May, usually with some reflowering in late summer/early fall. Unlike the typical blue flowers, Viola 'Eco Artist Palette' has two dark blue-purple upper petals contrasting with three near-white lower petals. Viola pedata has reportedly edible leaves and flowers although we haven't yet had enough to indulge. At home in a sunny, well-drained rock garden, Viola pedata is one of the few viola species in an otherwise weedy genus that we allow in our garden.
