Bird's Foot Violet (Viola pedata)

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 perennial 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.

The Magnificent Beauty of Bird's Foot Violet

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.
