| Viola tricolor |
Charming edible flower grows in any little nook-- amongst vegetables, in pots. Use leaves, flowers, or sprigs in salad or garnish. The yellow, purple, and lavender flowers can be seen in medieval manuscripts, symbolizing romantic love. Herbal uses include colds, heart, and skin problems. A favorite with children due to its edible flowers, size, fast growth, and “happy face” flowers.
