Build-A-Flower: Sweet Violet

Sweet Violet goes by many names including Wood Violet, English Violet, Common Violet, or Garden Violet. It is a low, creeping plant which has beautiful fragrant flowers and the blooms are usually blue-violet or white. As the flowers have a beautiful scent, these have been used for perfumes by the Ancient Greeks and wine by the Romans. Sweet Violet is native to parts of Europe and Asia but has been introduced to parts of North America and Australia.
