Description

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 them 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 violets alone. Because they seed and spread rapidly, and if they spread throughout your other perennials, and in a year or two, you'll have a big job pulling them all out and cleaning everything up.

But just look at those flowers! Who can resist? Plant yours where you want them to spread, and you'll love them forever.

Not deer resistant

By Frank

Comments about American Meadows Viola cornuta Columbine - Plant:

I never had the pleasure to see the plants as deers ate them as soon as we saw some green coming.

I know it's not deer proof but don't advertise on that

      Comments about American Meadows Viola cornuta Columbine - Plant:

      Love this plant! I put it on the side of my house in 100% full shade. A spot where nothing else has EVER been able to survive. This little cutie is doing very well and spreading nicely.
