Violets are Coming on Strong

Violets near Violets

From a shovel-full many years ago, this ground cover of violets grows prolifically in my yard.  It loves any shade it can find, and thrives under a deck or under rhododendrons.  If I am digging plants or bulbs surrounded by violets, the violets are the first to come back.  The blooms will continue into summer if they get enough moisture.
