Viola purpurea Kellogg

Viola purpurea Kellogg
Mountain Violet

A widely distributed species found throughout California, with the exception of the Central Valley, Viola purpurea has a somewhat misleading name, in that the flowers themselves are not obviously purple, but rather, are yellow and accented with purples. This plant is a perennial herb, with its areal, vegetative body emerging from a woody rhizome.
