A pretty little long-flowering perennial Viola. Almost black flowers are edible and make a beautiful garnish. Likes moisture retentive soil in sun or part shade. Cut back after the first flush of flowers and feed and mulch with compost. This should prompt more flowers in a fe weeks. Trim back again in the spring. Lovely in pots and containers, and the flowers are edible.
