(Viola ‘Etain’)
vy-OH-lah
Genus:  Viola
A hardworking, compact perennial, ‘Etain’ violet forms well-behaved clumps and blooms from time to time from spring through fall. The attractive, fleshy, bright green foliage needs protection from slugs. -Sylvia Matlock, Regional Picks: Northwest, Fine Gardening issue #127
Noteworthy Characteristics:  Blooms practically all season.
Care:  Plant in moist, rich, well-drained soil. "Etain' benefits from regular fertilizing, steady watering, and frequent deadheading. Cut back the foliage if it starts to look leggy.
Propagation:   By division, layering, or cuttings.
Problems:   Slugs.
