Heartsease (Viola tricolor) is a common European wild flower, growing as an annual or short-lived perennial. It has been introduced into North America, where it has spread widely and successfully.

Also known as the Johnny Jump Up (though this name is also applied to similar species such as the Yellow Pansy). It is the progenitor of the cultivated Pansy, and is therefore sometimes called Wild Pansy

The flowers have also been used to make yellow, green and blue-green dyes, while the leaves can be used to make a chemical indicator.

History of Heartsease:-

Long before cultivated pansies were developed, Heartsease was associated with thought in the “language of flowers”, often by its alternative name of pansy (from the French “pensée” – thought): hence Ophelia’s often quoted line in Shakespeare’s Hamlet, “There’s pansies, that’s for thoughts”. What Shakespeare had in mind was Heartsease, not a modern garden pansy.

Shakespeare makes a more direct reference to Heartsease in A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Oberon sends Puck to gather “a little western flower” that maidens call “Love-in-idleness”. Oberon’s account is that he diverted an arrow from Cupid’s bow aimed at “a fair vestal, throned by the west” (supposedly Queen Elizabeth I) to fall upon the plant “before milk-white, now purple with love’s wound”. The “imperial vot’ress” passes on “fancy-free”, destined never to fall in love. The juice of the heartsease now, claims Oberon, “on sleeping eyelids laid, Will make or man or woman madly dote Upon the next live creature that it sees.” Equipped with such powers, Oberon and Puck control the fates of various characters in the play to provide Shakespeare’s essential dramatic and comic structure for the play.
