Heartsease/ Wild Pansy

  • Viola tricolor


    Jumbo plug plant (70cc)


    Sweet faces of Heartsease attract a range of pollinators, and it is a caterpillar food plant of the Small Pearl-Bordered Fritillary Butterfly.


    So pretty in salads, as cake decorations and lovely for making posh ice cubes.


    Medicinally a powerful plant, being used as a heart tonic, blood cleanser and anti-inflammatory.


    Taken as a tea to ease congestion in bronchitis and coughs.


    Diuretic properties help with cystitis, rheumatism, and urinary disorders.


    Topically a soothing balm can be made to treat skin conditions including acne and eczema.


    Please do thorough research before using plants for internal and external purposes and seek medical advice if on medication, pregnant or breastfeeding.
