Bird's Foot Violet is a Gardener's Best Option

Birds Foot Violet, also known as Viola Pedata, matures up to 3" inches in height. It has beautiful petals filled with a brilliant orange center. The leaves are shaped like bird's feet, thus the name Bird Foot violet.

Bird's Foot Violet needs Dry Soil Conditions. 

These particular violets are best grown in direct sun to partial shade.

The Bird's Foot Violets are more resistant than the other violet flower family in numerous ways. However, Birds Foot Violet is well worth the hassle! The soil needed for these specific types of violets must be very well-drained. If the soil is not well-drained, the plant has a higher potential to wither away or rot. The plant must be free of weeds and other aggressive growing plants to prevent overgrowth. Although it is a short-lived perennial, it will self-seed as it becomes ready. These violets are astounding; you will have gorgeous flowers that bloom each year! 

Bird Foot Violet is known for its pretty purple blooms

From dark purple to light purple to white, they bloom mid to late spring and sometimes even fall. The sweet, coppery seeds found several inches from the mother plant are often attractants. The ants carry these seeds to their nests.

Birds Foot Violets is a Low Lying Perennial 

 Birds Foot Violet is commonly found in dry, upland sites. Birds Foot Violets are often seen in Eastern North America, the Midwest, and Southern parts of the United States. Bird-foot violets are low-lying perennials that tend to clump together. Bird-foot violet blooms from April to June and sometimes thrives again in the fall. The Bird-foot violet grows wild and is used as a ground cover by homeowners.

Birds Foot Violet is an Excellent Source of Ground Coverage 

Birds' Foot Violets are high to be used as ground coverings because they are spread by rhizomes which are stems under the ground that grow sideways; these rhizomes can send up new stems, which make new plants. The delicate flower leaves have a definite separation between them. The petals range from pale to dark violet with an orange center.

The Bird Foot Violet appears relatively flat and is 1-1 ½ inches in circumference. Birds Foot violet leaves of the flower are shaped like a bird's foot and are roughly ¾ to 2 inches long. The flower has five petals; often, all the leaves are the same color, ranging from light to dark violet, and turn white toward the center of the flower.

However, sometimes the two upper petals are dark violet, and the lower three are light blue or violet. The soil tends to be dry; these flowers typically do well in sandy or slightly rocky soils. These flowers can develop crown rot if the ground isn't bare and doesn't drain well. Weeds can also overtake them, so they must be kept in a weed-free area.
