Primarily of genus Viola (though the African violet is not, and is so named only because of superficial resemblance), violets actually supply the name for the color instead of the other way around. Violet flowers also come in yellow, white, cream, and blue, but obviously violet violets gave the color its name. As with many names of flowers, Violet became socially acceptable as a girl’s name. This and other names of flowers peaked in popularity at the turn of the 20th century before dropping. Violet, however, is climbing again. Viola, like other scientific names, is Latin in origin.

Just a few pointers on growing Violets. If their leaves/petals drop down they are letting you know that the conditions aren’t very favorable. To change this you will need to water them and add enough light so that they will become happy again and raise themselves to shine forth through out their lives.

Also, fertilize these plants every 2 to 4 weeks using fertilizer meant for Violets. Try and maintain temperatures between 65 and 72 degrees this is their best heat levels. There are great advantages and disadvantages to plucking the blooms from the plants, it makes the flowers more beautiful when they are dead to pluck the blooms and start over, but if you touch the blooms next to the dead ones you have a chance of making those petals discolored or droopy.

Violets can be the background flower or the main event, make sure that you know exactly which one you want them to be before you put them in your bouquet or in any of your arrangements, this is a great and beautiful flower.
