Weed of the Week – Wild Violet

This weeks weed of the week is Wild Violet.  Wild Violet is commonly found in lawns across North America and is considered a difficult to control weed, meaning multiple applications of both natural or synthetic weed control are required to effectively control it.  In many cases Wild Violet finds its way into a lawn creeping in from rock bed gardens or ground cover areas.  It is low lying and the easiest way to identify wild violet is by the heart shaped leaves and purple or white pansie like flowers that bloom during the early spring months.
