I have these little violets growing all over the yard and in my gardens. I started using them now for ground cover in the gardens. Works great! If I want to put something in, I just pull out some violets and plant what I want in that space. Otherwise, the violets are in there for fill.
I tried sugaring some of the violets, but I didn't use the right sugar (too coarse) and they pretty much collapsed...Ooops!.... I have to get the super-fine granulated sugar.
One thing to remember. African violets, the ones we all have in our houses and give as gifts, ARE NOT edible. Again, when wildcrafting, if you're not sure about something, either show it to an expert first or leave it alone.
