    The Viola odorata is a hardy perennial with violet or white fl
owers and dark green, heart-shaped leaves.  It typically blooms in early spring and has a subtle scent.  Viola odorata is the only wild violet that is scented.  It inhabits a wide-spread area of the United States as well as many other places outside of the United States.  The Viola odorata reproduces by double fertilization and seed dispersal methods.  It also it has many medicinal uses for humans.  The Sweet Violet is a very interesting plant - I hope this site helps you find what you are looking for!
