Common Dog Violet Plug Plants Viola riviniana

Common names include dog violet and wood violet.

A small native perennial plant with purple pansy-like flowers which grows up to 15cm in height, the common dog violet is found widespread across the UK in woodland edges, heaths, grassland and shady hedge banks.  It flowers from April to June, thriving in all soil types except very acidic or very wet.  Very like the sweet violet in appearance, but unscented. 

One of the RHS Plants for Pollinators, the common dog violet is an excellent food source for butterflies.

Our strong, healthy plants are grown in 40cc cell trays and are ready to be planted in their final position.

Sourced from native seed and grown for us in the UK, our plug plants are an ideal way to boost species in a wildflower meadow or to easily establish plants in your garden or in areas where seed germination can be erratic.

We recommend planting 5 plugs per metre square in groups of at least 3 per species for a naturalistic look.
