Viola Labradorica Alpine Violet is a low clumping perennial violet that has small purple - green foliage and develops violet coloured flowers during the Spring and Summer months of the year. We have had Alpine Violets flower in the garden all throughout the year here in Monbulk, they are easy to grow and provide plenty of colour to shady areas of the garden.
Alpine Violet will grow up to 20cms tall by 45cms wide in semi shade to full shade, in moist well drained soils and needs to be protected from full sun, drying out and frosts.
Alpine Violet as mentioned above is ideal for areas of full shade with dampness and grows very well, providing an attractive carpet of foliage colour and flowers under trees and other plantings.
Dichondra Emerald Falls is a creeping mat forming ground cover with small kidney shaped foliage, Emerald falls will grow approx. 10cm tall and prefers full sun to partial shade, it is ideal as a lawn substitute for low traffic areas and between pavers and under trees. Grow in a sunny to partly shaded position in moist well drained soils, before using as a lawn substitute, ensure that all weeds and grass are removed or destroyed before planting.... keep moist during warmer weather
