The complete chloroplast genome of Viola seoulensis, an endemic species to Korea, was determined in this study. The total genome size was 156507bp in length, containing a pair of inverted repeats (IRs) of 26404bp, which were separated by large single copy (LSC) and small single copy (SSC) of 85691 and 18008bp, respectively. The overall GC contents of the plastid genome were 36.3%. One hundred and thirty genes were annotated, including 85 protein-coding genes, 37 tRNA genes, and 8 rRNA genes. In these genes, 17 genes contained one or two introns. A phylogenetic tree showed that Violaceae was closely related to Salicaceae.
