OTHER: The sunny yellow flowers of this prairie violet measure ½ - ¾” across & have purple nectar guides in their throats. The backs of the upper petals are also highlighted in purple. Uncommon in violets, the plant has lance shaped leaves. This North American native is a great choice for naturalizing. Nuttall’s Violet is losing #s in the wild due to loss of habitat, & it listed as a threatened species in Minnesota. Together we can help this beautiful violet make a comeback! I planted mine this fall & am anxiously awaiting spring to get to meet them! They are easy to grow, & can grow in a variety of locations such as rocky bluffs, woodland settings, dry plains, & grasslands. The plants are able to tolerate some grazing, so could be a nice addition to pastures. If that is not reason enough, I have 1 more enticing tidbit to offer you. These Prairie Vioets are also a larval host for the Coronis Fritillary butterfly, whose photo I have included for you above. I know once you get a glimpse of that cutie, you will definitely not be able to resist :)

Seeds arrived thank you so much for the quick delivery. Hopefully I didn't get them planted too late. We are part way through the cold stratification process. I hope these work.
