This violet came from a school where I worked. The groundsman was a wonderful gardener and had all sorts of treasures that he would share if asked nicely.
After a comment on folia I’m thinking this may be a Parma Violet, maybe Violette de Toulouse, Duchesse de Palme or, is it Double Violet ‘King of the Doubles’, which is also said to be very fragrant-but not a Parma Violet.
I’m leaning towards the latter.
What do you think?
