Woolly Blue Violet (Viola sororia)

A blue, violet flower with five hairless petals. Grows mostly in woody areas or old fields and lawns.

How to Identify

This is a low growing plant. The color, form and number of petals and the hairy white inner part of the flower help to identify.

I spot this flower in spring along pathways through forests or on meadows along forests.
