De viooltjes kunnen natuurlijk ook niet missen in je tuin. Deze bloemen kun je bijna elk seizoen wel in je tuin plaatsen. In de winter is het alleen te koud voor deze bloemen. Je hebt ze in verschillende kleuren, dus er zal er altijd wel een in je tuin passen.

Bisexual women and lesbians used to give violets to women they were wooing, symbolizing their "Sapphic" desire. In a poem, Sappho described herself and a lover wearing garlands of violets. The giving of violets was popular from the 1910s to the 1950s.
