Viola odorata ‘Duchess de Parma’
The showiest and most fragrant of all violets, grown by Empress Josephine and adored by Napoleon’s second wife, the Duchess of Parma. Petite lavender-violet double blooms with creamy white interiors are so charming and intensely scented. Use under shrubs or as shade edging or right into containers for an easy whiff. Can be wintered indoors for its delightful fragrance.
