Viola hederacea ‘Monga Magic’ – Native Violet

Viola hederacea ‘Monga Magic’ is a great groundcover for moist areas, and has delicate mauve flowers. Best for part shade, but will tolerate sunnier spots. Flowers mostly spring and summer, with spot flowers the rest of the year. Good in pots under larger plants to add colour, lovely in baskets as well as in gardens. Doesn’t need much care but will appreciate some light liquid feeding in spring.

WHERE TO GET YOUR PLANT

Once you have found the plant that looks right for you, the next step is where to buy it.
Most nurseries stock a good range of plants, but due to space and supplies, they may not always have the plant that you are searching for in stock. If they don’t, they may be able to order it in for you if you request it.
Specialist nurseries are also able to give great advice, and if they don’t have the plant you have planned on, they can often suggest alternatives that will also work well for you.
