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 yearly--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 does not like wet feet, so plan a spot where rainwater does not stand.

Besides routine maintenance, Bird's Foot Violet is easy 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 you can use in many settings.

Birds Foot Violets

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.

We really appreciate you taking the time to leave us a review, Mary. These are the stories that keep us so motivated to continue doing what we are doing, and we are so happy to hear that you had a great experience. Let us know if we can do anything else for you.

Quality of bare root plants

The plants were in excellent condition when I received them. I put them in my crisper as recommended until able to plant them, when I planted them they were all healthy. Looking forward to seeing them all full of flowers!
