Small, double, pale lavender flowers, with white centres, from late winter to early spring. Sweetly scented.

Fertile, humus-rich, moist, well drained soil in dappled shade. Fairly tender, needing a mild location and protection from winter frosts as Palma violets are less hardy than many other forms, but will thrive in more sun.
