Wild Violets: Winter Perennial Weed
Happy Weed Wednesday! This week we want to talk about those pretty purple flowers that don’t belong in your lawn; Wild Violets
Although beautiful when they are in bloom, Wild Violets can take over quickly and become resistant to weed controls. This winter perennial weed is often found in shady areas of thin grass but can also spread to sunnier areas with less shade. Wild Violets are one of the toughest weeds to control, once it gets established.
It may take several applications over the course of a growing season or more to bring it under control. Once it is under control or eliminated, it is vital to improving lawn health to make sure these pretty purple flowers do not reoccur. That’s where we come in, with our comprehensive program of fertilizer and targeted weed control before, after, and during a weed’s life cycle. This will prevent them from growing further and wreaking havoc in your lawn. Wild Violets do not have a place in a healthy, green lawn. They can overtake and outcompete your grass. They also have a vining and woody growth habit that can cause several other problems.
