Viola hederacea (banksii) 140mm

A lush and pretty ground cover ideal for shaded areas. It spreads slowly by underground stolons and can tolerate light foot traffic, making it an ideal shady lawn substitute or a living mulch around pavers and steppers. 

Forms a carpet of round dark green leaves with sweet little purple and white flowers. It will grow in the shade but will flower better in dappled light or in a position where it will get some morning sun.  A versatile plant which tolerates a range of conditions, from deep shade to full sun, as well as some frost. The flowers can be used as garnish and in salads.
