Q.

Why do wild violets not flower?

Zone temperate Adelaide | jentool49 added on July 12, 2015 | Answered

They are planted in various parts of the garden in good soil, not soggy with some leaf matter, both in sun/shade. The leaves are big and healthy but alas no flowers.

There may be to much Nitrogen in the soil. This will cause lush greens and no flowers.
You can add phosphorous by using Bone Meal.
