This violet is common in southwestern Pennsylvania.  It can be found growing wild along the edges of the woods and occasionally along fence-rows.  The specimen shown in the image above is growing in Gary's wildflower and fern garden which is sandwiched between two houses, along a narrow sidewalk.  The species is a prolific bloomer that blooms from late spring through early summer.  Even after it finishes blooming, in maintains a lush pad of shiny green leaves until the insects and rabbits devour them.  Both the leaves and the blossoms are a tasty treat for animals and humans.

LOCATION: Westmorland County, PA
