nothing that does want to bloom in viola at home this fall, even at the odorata (I'm waiting to admire a new variety with pink flowers ..)

Viola prionantha bloomed for the first time this year for 4 years. the difference, I think compared to other years, is that it started growing much earlier in the season. a year when she had not bloomed, I thought she was dead because she reappeared very late.

 :P
I hope that my Viola striata will germinate this spring ...

 here is a species that I found 2 years ago, but not determined. I never got flowers.
do you have an idea of his species? this will help me to know his
 need; it is easily sown, fortunately, but often collapses in the fall.

Véronique,
It looks very much like Viola eizanensis, or could also be Viola chaerophylloides - both very shy flowering here (obviously not in Japan according the pics in books). Both seem to be quite short-lived.

my viola seems to have less cut leaves, but maybe it's because it's more shaded?
when I say that it is easy to sow, I mean that it is growing rapidly, this hotpot was sown in August.
 however, only 2 that germinated on a large number of seeds.

 the sowing of viola is really random. For the next seeds of violet that I will order at the srgc, I will try the GA3


here are my spring seedlings of Viola hederacea.
small because it was nibbled entirely by a beast this summer (there were only a few petioles)
 I thought it could be confused with V. banksii, but it is different, very dwarf.  it starts to stolonnize

the secret of violets: what happens in the cleistogamic flowers?

this is a very big magnification (not sure that this term of photographer is well translated here)

I snatched a sepal. the flower is already fertilized I think, because the ovary is already growing.
 before, it seems that the pystil turns to the single stamen?
it's very minimalist! but it works almost every time ...

 it is on the species that I think is Viola chaerophylloides, which has big flowers (compared to others). in V. sororia, cleistogamous flowers seem to remain underground.

finally I finally have an autumn bloom: Viola odorata 'Orchid Pink'. a seedling from last year that sprouted in the spring.

the color is delicate, it gradually clears up

Veronique, I grow this viola in a lean and well drained woodland substrate in the open
garden now for the second season and hope, that it will stay so well with me.

it is probable that mine does not bloom because it is in pot! I have to acclimatize it in the garden.

 I bought Viola Walteri online at " Promesse de fleurs"
 this is the first time I see this species sold on this side of the Atlantic. Can anyone tell me more about this species?

Violate walteri - prostrate southern Violet from West Virginia, Maryland, Florida, Georgia and Texas.
Found in rich acid-soil forests in shade or half-shade.
It spreads by runners that root und form new plants. The leaves have a silvery appearance caused by very tiny white hairs. Cleistogenes are also present.
Not from my own experience but from Doretta Klaber (1976) Violets of the United States
Hardinesss is not particularly mentioned.

here is Viola walteri 'Sylver Gem' that I received. She is still pretty despite the end of the season.
 'Sylver Gem' would be a naturally more silvery form compared to the rest of the population.

Viola corsica has been flowering all summer with occasional dead heading by the rabbits.  The first picture is from the middle of October and the second the middle of November with deer footprints all round :'

Very flowery for the fall!
 Was October also warmer than usual at home?
 in October, I still had some Viola dubyana, but not as much.
