Free images of North American Wildflowers 
Viola 

Note on large files:  Very large files may be bigger than your screen.  
Right click on any portion of the image showing and chose "save as". 

 

Note:   I am not an expert in the identification of plants and you should UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES rely 
upon any of these images to identify edible, toxic or medicinal plants. If I have identified a plant
inaccurately,  please let me know so that the descriptions may be corrected.  

 

Viola is a genus of flowering plants that are in the Violaceae (Violet) family in which there are about 600 species.  Some species are perennial plants, others annuals and some are considered to be small shrubs.  The pansy is a hybridized variety of viola.   The common name "viola" and "violet" is used to described annuals with small flowers.

 

Did you know...

that violets are either "caulescent" or "acaulescent"?  Caulescent means that the flowers grow on leafy stems.  Acaulescent means that the flowers grow on Scape which are stems without leaves.  

 

 

Viola cucullata

Viola cucullata is commonly known as the "Hooded Blue Violet, Marsh Blue Violet" or "Purple Violet".  This is a native North American species.  This is a low growing species that reaches heights of  10 - 30 cm.  Leaves form a cluster at the base of the plant.  Flower blooms are violet and dark blue (sometimes white) and have five petals.  

Did you know...

that the purple violet is the Provincial flower of New Brunswick?

Viola lanceolata

Viola lanceolata is commonly known as the "Bog White Violet" or the "Eastern Water Violet".  This violet is easy to identify since it is the only stemless white violet in Ontario that has narrow, lanceolate (leaves shaped like a lance head that are narrow with a point at each end) to oblanceolate (lanceolate leaves that are more pointed at the base) leaves.  This species grows to be 2 - 6 inches in height.  Flowering time is April to June.

Viola pubescens and  Viola pubescens var. scariuscula are similar species except that the latter does not have "downy" hairs on the plant's leaves.

The Earth
Laughs in Flowers


~ Ralph Waldo 
Emerson ~

 

 

"We can complain 
because rose bushes 
have thorns, 
or rejoice because 
thorn bushes 
have roses."

~ Abraham Lincoln ~

 

 

"I wonder if
the Daffodil,
shrinks from the
touch of frost,
And when her veins
grow stiff & still,
She dreams
that life is lost?
Ah, if she does,
how sweet a thing
Her resurrection
day in spring!

~ Emma C. Dowd ~

 

 

"Bred feeds the body, indeed, but flowers 
feed also the soul."

~ The Koran ~

 


"If seeds in the 
black earth 
can turn into 
such beautiful roses, 
what might not 
the heart of man 
become in its 
long journey 
toward the stars?"

~ G.K. Chesterton ~

 


 

"I'd rather have
roses on my table
than  diamonds
around my neck."
~ Emma Goldman ~

 

 

 

"Where flowers bloom
so does hope."

~ Lady Bird Johnson ~
