Rampant Violets

Rampant Violets

I'm very happy with them. They only appear in shady, stony places, often where there is (apparently) no soil!

Beautiful things. Sounds like they put themselves there, what a blessing.

Given by a friend, originally with a warning that they would "take over". They only appear where virtually nothing else will grow - so useful and delightful...

Sounds perfect for your garden. We have just one tiny native of this, I've seen one flower one time. This is lovely.

So do I! They grow between slabs as well but only in shade. The patio is made from an old coal-bunker - I don't know where they've put their roots...
