Petite Violet: February Flower of the Month [SPONSORED POST]

Flickr user sir_Iwan

Unexpectedly, the birth flower for February is NOT the rose but the very pretty and petite violet.

Violets are bedded and potted plants and so popular that Americans spend over 111 millions dollars annually on flats of violas for their gardens and pathways. The Common Blue Violet is a stemless herbaceous perennial plant native to Eastern North America. It is known by a number of common names including Common Meadow Violet; Purple Violet; Woody Blue Violet; Hooded Violet; and Wood Violet.

The Viola Soria or Common Blue Violet is also the state flower of New Jersey! A common lawn or garden plant, the violet has been historically used for food and medicine!  This still holds true today.

The violet is absolutely beautiful when stemmed and used in as a Victorian nosegay; or used on an ornamental belt, dress or scarf compliment. Lightly fragrant, the violet is a champion when it is either an accent flower or to stand alone.  There is no fear that the violet can stand alone bloom!
