This speckled violet can be used as a groundcover in a variety of sun and soil conditions. Leaves lay mostly flush to the ground, with short flowering stems rising a few inches above the leaves. In ideal conditions, plants can become widespread due to self-seeding. Flowers are self pollinated, and do not need insects for pollination. Instead, it has value in being a butterfly host plant, producing a bounty of seeds for small animals, and as a groundcover.
