Wild Violets as a companion plant?

10 years ago

I am overrun with wild violets in my lawn, and I have finally decided to give in and let the violets be. Usually they are the only green in my "lawn" anyway, and they don't have to be mowed.

My question is, does anyone allow them to creep into their hosta or other flower beds? Not that they don't do that already, but do you remove them when they arrive? I'm afraid the fibrous roots of the violet will be a water hog, or that they will choke out other desirable plants.

What do you do about wild violets?
