I'm growing wild violet from seed for the first time, how soon can I expect flowers?

I see your question was not answered... Most perennials flower in the second year from seed.

I've had some wild violet V. sororia (striped) in my yard for years, but the 2nd-year-bloom rule was demonstrated for me this year by Sandy. For some reason, almost all my blooming-size violets were killed off, but this spring seedlings came up everywhere. I'll be looking forward to violets this coming May.

(Same for a lot of other perennials: my blooming-age plants were killed, but seedlings came up in droves. Aquilegia, for example.)
