Common Blue Violet (Viola sororia)
Common Blue Violet will spread readily. It is sometimes considered a lawn weed because of its prolific and adaptable nature, but together, they are a lovely groundcover and provide early nectar source for bees and other pollinators. Spring is the typical bloom time, but because of the early bloom time, it's not uncommon to see many Viola species bloom again in the early Fall.
