Viola odorata blunt sepals

Sweet violet

Viola odorata – sweet violet

Named so because it is the only violet species in Britain to be fragrant – I liken the smell as a mix between parma violets and urine, which makes sense considering the popular 90’s era sweets are in fact violet flavoured. As for the urine..it was not just because my specimen happened to be covered in dog wee….they all smell like it!
