Vi­o­las Viola

NZ Lifestyle Block - - DIY FOOD -

Heart­sease ( Viola tri­color) olor) grows wild in our gar­de­nen and is still among our favourite urite gar­nishes. Put it against st a green salad, and the tiny, whiskered iskered pur­ple and yel­low face­ses sing. Bet­ter yet, even in mid-win­terer I can find some in the gar­den.

Once es­tab­lished, they­hey will self­seed read­ily, pro­duc­ing in­ter­est­ing colour vari­a­tions. I en­joy watch­ing what these pro­mis­cu­ous lit­tle plants come up with.

How­ever, any small-faced viola can be used.
