Which it will, given half a chance! Was horrified to see one of our local plant sellers offering this as a basket plant. Now, it may well do good there, but you will be stuck with it for ever … let's be honest, it is a weed. However, if you like a weed then it no longer is one, you just need to control it. Good luck with that.
I've got the dark leafed purple flowered violet - can't recall name - which arrived in a pot of something else, and is now one of the major weeds in our garden - ta lots!!
