Purple Violets are hardy in zones 2 through 10
Purple violets are members of the Violaceae plant family and pansies and violas. They often live in rock gardens or woodland areas like other members of this deciduous forest-loving group. If you're looking for something delicate but hardy that could be grown in U.S Department of Agriculture zones 2 through 10, these gorgeous flowers may be worth considering.
Violaceae includes colors like red, yellow, blue, and white. Captivating colors of violet flowers are available in many shades with varieties like Johnny-jump-ups, dainty spring blooms with velvety purple and yellow flowers, dooryard violet, and California sweet violet. Sweet Violet is prized for its deep violet blooms and a compact growth rate perfect for small gardens or containers.
Purple violets thrive when planted in full sun. Planting them in part shade will cause them to flower later than in the full sun. When choosing your site for your new plantings, please do so by placing them in an area that receives at least six hours of direct sunlight daily during the hottest part of the day. If you are unsure about the heat tolerance of your specific varieties, ask a local nursery if they recommend anything besides the full sun.

Deadheading is a process that involves pinching off the fresh blooms at their base so they don't wilt and die. It will also keep your plants tidy, resulting in more flowers per plant. Cutting flowers from this plant for bouquets won't hurt it because cutting them close to ground level allows sunlight/water to flow while avoiding unnecessary damage due to extra cuts on top of what's already been done. For healthy growth later in autumn, consider cutting your violets right down and allowing some light/moisture underneath the soil.
The color purple is often associated with love and romance. The color's popularity is primarily due to its use in Romeo and Juliet. Purple flowers are typically seen in nature, and people can find beautiful arrangements in stores all over the place and order an entire collection just for themselves, no matter what time of year.
