Bird's Foot Violet: Viola pedata, or the Bird's Foot Violet, is a lovely herbaceous perennial plant with showy blue or violet flowers that add color to the late-spring garden.
Bird's Foot Violet is a sun-loving flower that can tolerate a little filtered shade. It is a North American native species, found naturally growing in meadows, along ditch banks, and in woodland clearings from southern New England through the mid-south and west across the open prairies of the upper midwest.
It prefers de-compacted soil, and you will fertilize it about twice per year--in the early spring and the fall. In late autumn, gardeners in northern climates often add a protective blanket of hardwood mulch. Although Bird's Foot Violet likes moisture, it definitely does not like wet feet, so plan a spot where rainwater does not stand.
Other than routine maintenance, Bird's Foot Violet is an easy plant to grow.
TN Nursery suggests Bird's Foot Violet if you have a sunny spot that needs a touch of late spring color.
Plant Bird's Foot Violet in these spots:
Bird's Foot Violet gets its name from the unique appearance of its leaves--they grow in a shape that resembles a bird's foot! The leaves are silvery green, elongated to about three inches, and lobed in a way that looks like a claw.
The flowers have four petals--the two upper petals are usually blue, and the lower petals may be a richer shade, like purple or violet. The two-toned effect is stunning.
Bird's Foot Violet grows to about eight inches high and wide, a reasonably sized plant that you can use in many settings.

I could not be happier with my order of bare-root Birdsfoot Violet plants. They arrived in excellent condition. I ordered five plants and got 13! Granted, some were small. But most of them had stocky crowns and several had multiple flower buds! I will definitely be ordering from you again.
