Viola walteri ‘Silver Gem’
at Digging Dog

Viola

Violet

Hailing from the world’s temperate regions, these endearing hardy selections are reliably perennial. They prosper in bright shade with fertile, well-drained and evenly moist soil.

Viola walteri ‘Silver Gem’ partial shade

Originating as a chance seedling in Bibb County, Alabama, and recently introduced by Delaware's Mt. Cuba Center, this dazzling nearly evergreen Viola lives up to its name. Prominent olive green veins and greenish purple reverses distinguish low growing heartshaped silvery leaves that clothe trailing stems and forge a no-nonsense dense mounded ground cover. Energetic, adaptable and drought tolerant once established, 'Silver Gem's dapper appearance is further festooned with a multitude of delicate purple flowers from spring until frost.

Blooms April–September.

Size: 3"–5" high x 8"–10" wide; hardy to zone 5.
