Wondering if Bleeding Hearts, Wiegala and Columbine can co-habitate with wild violets, or will they be overtaken?
Thanking you in advance. In central KS

Welcome!

The violets won't crowd out the Weigelia because it is a shrub with woody stems that stick up all the time. The columbine and the Bleeding Hearts will have a more difficult time.

I have tons of violets. They don't seem to stop my bleeding hearts and Columbine. But removing violets before planting the others is a good idea.
Plant it and they will come.

They are vermin of the flora world.
I will be digging out my Mother's former wild garden, as it is now 99 percent consumed by those vermin.
It is 7 by 3 feet.
One of the few items when I see it , now, I will spot hit with veggie killer.

Those vermin are good at keeping the weeds down in a perennial shrub/tree
garden though. Smiling

It is very difficult for me to grow wood violets, everything eats them... rabbits, mice, rats, deer... difficult for me to eat them when everybody else beats me to the leaves!

very attractive ground cover if you are lucky enough to have moist enough conditions... and unlike useless turf... you never have to mow those gorgeous violets!

Thank you all for your replies Hurray! I was wondering if I dug them out, if then the spot could be used. It will certainly be worth the try. I really do appreciate all of your opinions. Thank you! Group hug
