Viola pedatifida

Common name: Prairie Violet

Native plant

Prairie Violet has deep blue flowers that are five-petaled, the middle one being spurred. This clump-forming plant grows to 8” tall. Easily grown in moist, humusy, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Prairie Violet is easily confused for Bird's Foot Violet (Viola pedata). The easiest way to tell them apart is whether or not the flowers are bearded. Birdsfoot Violet is beardless and has larger flowers, up to 1½ inches across. This dainty wildflower is perfect for borders and rock gardens.
