The plants that we know as the wild violet have been cultivated and grown since ancient times. Because they are well-known, many of them are easily identifiable although their cultivation has fallen out of fashion. The wild violet often shows up in backyard lawns, even in partial shade. The little plants look like either the pink-flowered violet, the variegated violet type.
Wild violets do not require a lot of water and are quite easy to grow. If you have a shady spot in your backyard, wild violets will do fine. However, if you’re in a warmer part of the country and it gets hot in the summer months, you will need to plant them under a covered patio or in a fern pot.
