Blue Violets add a Spectacular Blue Accent to any Garden
It's preferable to plant blue violets in the fall season. The flower reaches bloom in the shade of the full sun, making them easy to grow on a windowsill or garden. Most blue violets fail to grow due to insufficient light. So, it's essential to make sure you can provide the plant with enough light to reach maturity. Blue violets require at least 1,000- foot-candles of light for between 6 to 8 hours. More intense light allows for better growth. However, the flower can be grown in lower light levels of 200 to 500 candles.
Blue Violets have sparkling blue flowers.
Blue violets are hardy in zones 4-8. The plant's mature height varies upon the specific type of Leucojum; L. vernum grows from 6 to 12 inches while L. aestivum grows from 12 to 18 inches. The pH of the soil should be between 6.1 to 7.8. The soil should be at least 4 inches deep or measure 2 ½ times the bulb's height. The soil should also be fertile, loose, and relaxed to crumble. This perennial bulb is a beautiful ground cover that is resistant to deer and very tolerant of moisture.
