    Lawn violets adding color and fragrance to a still largely dormant lawn. I can understand why people consider this plant to be weedy, because it is, but I wouldn’t rank it in the same class as the bluegrass itself. In fact, I think I would much rather have a “lawn” of these violets than the grass. The denser patches give off their distinct and deep perfume in the early evening.
