Plant life cycle:



Native to various regions across eastern mainland Australia, extending into Queensland and as far north as Cairns, and also found in Tasmania. Arrowhead Violet thrives in wet and dry sclerophyll woodland and forest environments on sandy to enriched soils. It has also found in Papua New Guinea and reportedly further into Asia.

Leaf information:

Circular/ovate dark green leaves

Preferred Soil:

Adapts to a range of soil conditions but thrives in well-drained, enriched soils

This plant has distinctive arrow-shaped leaves and delicate but striking violet to violet-blue flowers. It's a versatile and resilient herb that flourishes across a broad range of environments, from the cool climates of Tasmania to the tropical forests of Queensland. Its adaptability makes it a superb choice for gardeners seeking a low-growing, ground-cover plant that offers both ornamental beauty and ecological benefits, such as a host plant for many butterfly species but specifically the Australian fritillary butterfly that is at risk of extinction.

Care Considerations:

Regular watering is necessary to keep the soil consistently moist, especially during dry periods. This species is relatively low-maintenance but benefits from occasional fertilisation and mulching to enhance soil health and moisture retention.
