Bird's Foot Violet needs dry soil conditions for example sand or sand like soils are best the reason being that they will help the flowers to thrive

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

The Bird's Foot Violets are more resistant than the rest of the violet flower family in numerous ways. However, Birds Foot Violet are well worth the hassle! The soil needed for these specific type 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 kept free of weeds and other aggressive growing plants; this is 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 the pretty purple blooms

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