    The plants arrived quickly and were in good shape except for two, which looked like they were on their last days. After planting them, all of the plants took on new vigor day by day. Even the two plants that appeared destined for mulch rejuvenated and sent out new leaves.

Description

Birds Foot Violets is a Low Lying Perennial 

 Birds Foot Violet commonly found in dry, upland sites. Birds Foot Violets are often seen in Eastern North America but can also be found in the Midwest and Southern parts of the United States. Bird-foot violets are a low-lying perennial that tends to clump together. Bird-foot violet blooms from April to June and sometimes can thrive again in the fall. The Bird-foot violet grows wild and used as a ground cover by homeowners.

Birds Foot Violet is an Excellent Source for Ground Coverage 

Birds Foot Violets are high to be used as ground coverings because they spread by rhizomes which are stems under the ground that grow sideways; these rhizomes can send up new stems which make new plants. The dainty flowers leaves have a definite separation between them. The petals are range from pale to dark violet with an orange center.

The Birds Foot Violet appears to be relatively flat and is 1-1 ½ inches in circumference. Birds Foot Violets leaves of the flower are shaped like a birds foot and are roughly ¾ to 2 inches long. The flower has a total of 5 petals on it; often all of the leaves are the same color that ranges from light to dark violet and turn white toward the center of the flower. However sometimes the upper two petals are dark violet, and the lower three leaves are light blue or violet. The soil tends to be dry; these flowers typically do well in sandy or slightly rocky soils. If the ground isn’t bare and doesn’t drain well, these flowers can develop crown rot. Weeds can also overtake them, so it is crucial that they are kept in a weed free area.
