This lovely little white violet is common throughout Florida where there are bogs and swamps. It likes moist, sandy soil.

This is a tiny little violet that I happened to accidentally rescue. It grows from rhizomes or from seeds. It requires moist soil and lots of sunshine. It is one of the earliest bloomers in my garden, starting to bloom at the end of January into February. It requires virtually no care and does not require any special care or fertilizer beyond what is naturally available from rainwater and the soil. I have not found it to be bothered by any garden pests either. This is a native plant. Another common name for this violet is Long-leaf Violet.
