Tips from Fran
Viola Australian Violet is a roaming Viola. It grows underground and on top making it a fast fill in and good for little feet and paws. Whack it back to keep it short (walking on it will do the same thing) or let it run and watch it ramble. Either way, it’s a great carpet on the ground.
