I made the mistake of bringing some home and now my whole yard and all of my beds are filled with the little darlings. I now have a daily battle with them and I am the one losing. They will spread like kudzu so dig up any you have andd get all the root or the easily spread little seeds will soon have you fighting the same battle I fight.
You think they would survive in Zone 5? I have a wooded area behind my home and it's pretty bland, but too many pine trees to really do anything with it...wouldn't mind throwing some seeds down there...it's gotta make it prettier than it is now...if you want rid of some...let me know.
I would love some seeds... Are they a throw and grow or should i actually plant them? Let me know if you want to trade for something or want me to send SASE...
Thanks A Bunch,
Ya'll are talking about my all time favorite flower, the "sweet violet"...there's even an entire site dedicated to them: www.sweetviolets.com (click on hyperlink below to take you directly to the site) http://www.sweetviolets.com
The webmaster is a really nice guy from the UK and the editor of the journal lives in Baltimore MD and travels all over to different violet societies across the world.
Anyone who doesn't want these darlings, I'd be happy to take them off your hands. I don't care of they are invasive or not...to me, that's heaven!
I also have loads of the violets (WI) both the purple and the white with purple throat.(Can't tell them apart, until first bloom) Let me know for SASE or trade. I love them, but they can take over in a small flower area. Marcia
