Canary Violets in general are perennial to woody sub shrubs (the latter especially from subalpine and alpine regions) with nice, dense foliage. The Canary species are suited for an unheated, not necessarily frostfree greenhouse as they withstand some freezing in winter for a short period. Canary Violets are without exception very rare, and especial Viola cheiranthifolia and Viola palmensis are very endangered.
Sow flat at some 5°C to 15°C from autumn to late spring. Seeds require a cooling period for several months prior to germination. As it is the case in many hardy perennials, if seeds are sowed too late in the year, most will not germinate before spring the following year. Seedlings may be flowering size within two years.
All are USDA Climate Zone 8.
