About the Violet
Violets, as their name implies, are often purple, but these delicate blooms can come in a wide range of colors, including blue, yellow, white, cream and a combination of these flowers. True violets have been part of human history for centuries, as the Greeks and Romans both refer to the flowers in their writings and artwork. The ancient Greeks viewed it as a symbol of love and fertility, and ancient love potions often included the flower.
Violets are known for their small blooms and ability to grow well in many parts of the country. While the flowers are small, they have a long blooming period, and are a great addition to a floral arrangement. The violet is also the state flower of Illinois because it grows so well in the wild in the Midwest states.
