Raleigh Greenways: No shrinking violet

I didn’t need a calendar to tell me spring had arrived in North Carolina…

    I have never seen violets in Raleigh. Been looking in my woodland area for years. Too shady? Also on Greenway near Buffalo Road.

      Strange! They are just finishing blooming here now, but you may find a few stragglers in dappled shade areas. They do bloom more in full sun, but will often still bloom some in shadier areas. Keep an eye out for moist, sunny yards in early spring – they can really take over a yard if someone lets them (which I do). I think we’ve seen a lot in the Walnut Creek Wetlands area of the greenway – if you want to check there! 🙂
