Common Blue Violets in my gardens

carole_dMay 22, 2009

I really like this plant but I noticed it's really starting to take over a few of my gardens. I've started pulling them out where they're growing close to or on top of other plants but I'm wondering if I need to do that.

I know they're extremely invasive but will they harm other perennials?

No. Just pull out from where you don't want. The term invasive is supposed to refer to a plant that is not native to your area. Not knowing which of the hundreds of violets you have the term weedy is probably more correct.

I love violets and have several different types.
