Viola cornuta (Hornveilchen)

Viola cornuta (horned pansy, horned violet) is a low-growing, clump-forming temperate evergreen perennial in the genus Viola (violet), native to the Pyrenees and the Cordillera Cantábrica of northern Spain at altitude of 1,000–2,300 metres (3,300–7,500 ft). It grows to 50 cm in height and spread. It has mid-green ovate leaves with rounded teeth, and masses of delicate pale violet or yellow flowers in early summer. The flower consists of five strap-shaped petals with a slender spur.

Plant the winter-hard horn-rimmed violet in autumn or spring in the garden patch or in bowls, boxes, mixed patches or discounts. It is important to put them in a sunny, brighter to half-shady location. The plants stand all kinds of garden grounds, however, must be held steadily humid. With boxes or bowls, pay attention that the soil is permeable. By her compact growth and the countless blossoms the garden plant forms very nice flower carpets and is also suited very well as a hanging plant.
