Woolly Blue Violet

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.

We combine physical characterics and behavior patterns with location and seasonal aspects to identify species.

Where & When to Spot?

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

With each photo, we store date and geo-location providing us data about location and season of observation. We also use a tracking utility to save observations in the field when there was no opportunity to take a good shot.

Anything to add, to correct?
