(Sweet Violet) Spreading evergreen perennial groundcover, fully frost hardy and preferring moist soils in the shade or part sun.

      I have a very healthy old maple tree but it has a lot of exposed roots over the surface and so people walk on them, and get snipped every once in a while when cutting back the grass. I would prefer to remove the grass and replace with groundcover that doesn’t require mowing so help keep the soil in place while protecting the roots. Is this a suitable groundcover for this or is there a better recommendation?

      Hi Crissy,
      I do think that violets would be a good choice. Problem is to get rid of the grass. You might get away with spreading newspaper or cardboard on top of the exposed roots, putting a thick layer of coir (black gold “just coir”) on top of that, or maybe peat moss, and planting violets or bugle into that.

    Do you think this is the same plant sweet violet? I stumbled across many of these in my woods the end of May that were in bloom here NE Ohio. Thank you.

      That would be the Ohio version of Viola, not odorata.

      Could be either Wood Violet, which is just wild Viola Odorata (also the Wisconsin state flower), or could be Common Blue Violet, Viola Sororia.

    Growing wonderfully in Central Florida

    ian_fallis (verified owner)

    Late last summer I purchased three sweet violet plants. The healthy plants arrived in great shape, and they have thrived over the fall and winter. I have even been able to separate out four plants to expand their bed. In the photo, the three plants and their progeny are on the right, and the four plants I’ve separated out are on the left. We’ll see how they do in our long, hot, humid summer, but so far, so great!

      Hi Chrissy,
      They did survive the summer and are well-rooted in their pots at this time. They aren’t exactly a houseplant like an African Violet would be, but I suppose if given adequate air circulation, moderate light, frequent watering and a loamy soil that Sweet Violet could do quite nicely indoors in your zone.
