Both of these violets are considered edible, and much is made about the extremely high vitamin content. In europe, violets are made into a "vitamin paste" and still sold in the pharmacies there. Yet I can't seem to find anything about the specific nutritional components and chemical makeup of these flowers. I have herbavores as pets, who love nothing better than to "graze" the backyard for the wild violets located there in the summer. My veternarian doesn't seem to believe this is a problem, yet I would like him to take a look at the "makeup" of these plants to be sure.
