Growing the Alaska Violet
The Alaska Violet grows best in a cool and moist loose soil and humus mixture. Keep the plant in partial shade and out of the way of strong winds. Keep the pH of the soil between 6 and 6.5. If the pH becomes too high, the Alaska Violet will become chlorotic.
Propagating the Alaska Violet
Starting with the seed, they are best sown in a cold frame during the early spring months. When the seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant them into individual pots and put them out in the summer.
Division of the Alaska Violet will normally occur just after the plant flowers, but may happen a bit later in the fall months. Smaller divisions are best started in greenhouses or outdoors in partial shade. The larger divisions can be planted outdoors, directly into their final positions.
