Viola odorata
‘Comte de Brazza’

Originally bred by the Italian nobleman and passionate botanist Filippo Savorgnan di Brazza, this is another hard to find “Parma Violet”. With possibly the largest flowers at 1.25” across, the snowy double blooms look like little roses and give off a heavenly sweet perfume. Blooming early Spring into Summer, they’re a treasure to be cut and savored for charming posies. Deep green leaves make for a handsome groundcover that thrives under shrubs or in a shady area, spreading to 15” across. Give them rich, loamy soil and cut back anytime to refresh. Choice in pots (1+ gal) for up-close enjoyment. Easily divided to share with friends!
