The leaves are symmetrical, the venation is ribbed (costate) and range in color from yellowish-green to dark green. Most have heart-shaped scalloped leaves but some have palmate leaves and other shapes. Many have no stem and the rest have short stems. Those with short stems form basal rosettes. Leaves measure 1 to 3 inches long and 1/2 to 2 inches wide. The leaves grow from the basal crown.

Sunflower

A creeping, evergreen perennial from eastern Australia and the Western Pacific Islands. It grows to about 10cm (4″) tall, and spreads widely by means of trailing stolons that root at the nodes. The leaves are kidney shaped and bright green in colour. The purple and white flowers appear mainly in the warmer months, however this plant is rarely without a few flowers. Description: A vigorous, creeping evergreen ground cover that features bright green kidney shaped leaves and delicate purple and white flowers. The flowers appear mostly in the warmer months, but it is rare that you will see the Native Violet without at least a flower or two all year round. Generally very ground hugging, the Native Violet rarely gets any taller than about 10cm. The plant spreads through trailing runners or vine like tendrils.

This is one of the most commonly widespread violets in Western Oregon. Sweet yellow flowers rising slightly above bright green heart-shaped leaves, brightening up woodland settings; spreading by underground rhizomes, V. glabella will eventually carpet the ground with its cheery presence. Given enough moisture, it can become somewhat invasive; drier conditions can keep it more in check. But why not let it have its way throughout a woodland setting? Slugs and snails find the leaves of this violet to their liking, but other than that all-too-common pest, these violets are pretty immune to trouble in the garden.Lawn and turf, in my opinion, can be very over rated. If you have a situation where you just can’t grow a lawn, why persist and end up with something less than fantastic when you can substitute with an equally as functional, yet probably even more attractive substitute. I know I’m not even going to consider grass in our courtyard, there’s not enough space, and I honestly don’t want the maintenance hassle for very little functional return, anywhere needing ground cover vegetation will probably be treated to this little gem of a plant.
