It's time to show off your garden filled with American Meadows products!
Experienced gardeners have a strong love-hate relationship with violets, and it all depends on where they are planted. Of course, everybody loves the flowers. Just keep the wild ones out of your regular flower garden, and use them under trees, in front of shrubs, and other places for patches of color and borders of groundcover-like greenery after the flowers are gone. Because they seed and spread rapidly, and if they spread throughout your other perennials, in a year or two, you'll have a big job pulling them all out and cleaning everything up. (This is much less of a problem with the hybrids than the wild violets many people collect from the woodland.)
But just look at those flowers! Who can resist? Plant yours where you want them to spread, and you'll love them forever.

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
