I suppose these are technically a weed, but I find them pretty. There were quite a few more before we mowed. We left the patch by the step.
I may have the species wrong. They’re whatever grow commonly in yards, not a special cultivar or anything, and they don’t have a scent I can detect. Please correct me if I’m wrong.
Apparently, I need to take a closer look at the stems and roots to see if it’s really sororia: http://forums.gardenweb.com/forums/load/violet/msg0400260524597.html
This planting is in the Front: lilac garden .
Already in my garden (I didn't plant it)
