About the Viola 'Family': Viola is a genus of flowering plants from the Violaceae family. A large number of species are grown for their ornamental qualities and are called a number of different names. Varieities with large, multi coloured flowers are usually known as 'Pansy', where as the smaller flowered varieiteis (including wild species) are more commonly known as 'Violet'. Most Viola are herbaceous and have heart shaped leaves. They are usually either quite low growing with short stems or are acaulescent meaning they have no noticeable stems and appear to rise straight from the ground. The flowers of most varieties are zygomorphic with bilateral symmetry.
