The violet is one of the most recognisable flowers. Even the scientific name of the principal type makes sense; it is Viola odorta, the sweet violet. It is a native of Europe. Many hybrid forms exist with both single and double flowers. Flower colours include white and shades of pink lavender, violet, purple and yellow.
