White Violets ?


Marly, I am a total guesser though, yes I believe these are English native Violets. I will need to look more deeply though to find them. These sound as if they are North American.

Your place sounds so charming! My mom had a nightingale that took up residence in her yard in a suburban area no less. She named it Pavarotti but after a while he woke her up so much that she wanted him dead. The poor thing practically had a ransom on its head. Come to think of it, he has been gone for a while...

I have joined a British Wildlife forum and the Commander has said the following:

"Your Violets are Sweet Violets (Viola odorata) they commonly occur in blue-purple or white forms and you can more rarely find them with pink, wine-purple or even orange-yellow flowers. They are a native species but various forms have also frequently escaped from gardens and it can be almost impossible to tell if any given population is truely native".

Thank you Commander.
