Viola walteri 'Silver Gem'
Viola walteri 'Silver Gem'
Common Name: prostrate blue violet

From the gardens of Mt. Cuba Center, North Creek is delighted to introduce this tough native groundcover. Easily identified by trailing stems and delicate lavender flowers, 'Silver Gem' forms a dense, tidy mat of attractive silver foliage. Flowers appear in March and persist into autumn. Our plant trials have proven 'Silver Gem' to be exceptionally drought tolerant and happiest in part to full shade. Pot in quarts or gallons for early spring sales.

Height: 3-5 Inches
Spread: 10-15 Inches
USDA Hardiness Zone: 6-8
