I'm looking for Violets or Violet seeds that survive in zone 7 with frost and snow and thrive in shady lawn areas. We have purple and white species, I'm looking for orange,yellow,pink.

In the Butterfly garden if a plant is not chewed up I feel like a failure

Do you have the species name, I could research about it.

Hello Keith one is the Phillippine variety
The other , Which I am talking about is growing here still , but iffy , I am not sure ,White, Violet and what I refer to as an orange , I do not think their species native, but they could be partly from Carolina Violets crossed with Swiss
Because they have been Hybridized , Hard to say what seeds will do . The same reason I try a few though from time to time , If you want the harder to find color as blooms , sometimes that is about the only way . or so it seems
Off colors like oranges , greenish ,,and red are not that common are they ? ,,

I'm in zone 5/maybe 6 and I grow the johnny jump ups like they sell at Lowes, in defferent colors. They always re-seed for me. Keith you shouldn't have any trouble growing these in 7.
