Viola eriocarpa (Smooth Yellow Violet) [15 Seeds]


Germination Information: I recommend sowing the seeds as soon as you get them, just pressed into the surface of your chosen seed-starting medium (do not cover), and leaving them outdoors for the winter, with germination likely in spring.

Note that this information will not be on the seed packet you receive.

Recent taxonomic changes have this yellow-flowered violet currently called Viola eriocarpa, but you may also know it as Viola pubescens var. scabriuscula or Viola pubescens var. eriocarpa. This woodland wildflower produces bright yellow, purple-veined blooms in spring. A “caulescent” species, its flowers and smooth, heart-shaped leaves are attached to a stem rather than emerging from ground level. It’s usually in the range of 4 to 8 inches tall, occasionally up to 1 foot in ideal conditions. Plants grow best in partial shade and average to moist soil. Smooth yellow violet is native throughout much of the eastern half of North America. I gathered these seeds from plants growing wild here at Hayefield in Bucks County, PA. Hardiness range is usually Zones 3 to 8.

Collected in early to mid July 2023. At least 15 seeds. PA ecotype. Shipping to US addresses only.
