Wild violet, also called violet, field pansy, or hearts-ease, is an annual or short-lived perennial. The leaves are dark green, 1 to 2 1/2 inches long, with slightly saw-toothed edges. Small flowers resembling pansies bloom from April to June on slender flower stalks. The flowers may be pale yellow, purple, white, or a combination. Wild violets produce seeds that sprout in spring or, in mild-winter areas, in fall and spring. The plants often produce small bulblets in the fall that resprout the following spring. Wild violets are a persistent weed in partially shaded lawns and planting beds.
Violets are persistent. Treat in early spring to prevent seeds from sprouting.
