Viola cornuta hybr.
Our violets have bright yellow flowers with a diameter of ca 2.5 centimetres. Many of us are very fond of violets: they look at us very innocently with their big eyes. In Victorian times violets were associated with humble modesty and other (rather boring) virtues. The Romans grew violets to flavor their wine. The violet flowers with their mild, sweet flavor can be used to garnish salads, desserts and cakes. You can also make decorative ice cubes with a violet bloom inside, or try to make candied or crystallised violets.
