Native Violet

Comments: -

I used these everywhere as living mulch to out-compete the weeds and as a water indicator. They droop way before the potted fruit trees get thirsty enough to show any signs - so when the violets droop it's time to water the pots.

Pollination: No

Pest Control:

Something large and mammalian is eating them - but only from 2 pots specifically! The pots are too high for rabbits so I am thinking I either have a very brave kangaroo, a feral goat or a dog gone vego!
