Violets (Viola spp.):  Perennial or annual belonging to the Violet family (violaceae).  A native group of plants that can be difficult to distinguish between because some freely hybridize.  Plants arise from a dense, fibrous root system.  Leaves are heart shaped and regularly lobed along the edges.  Flowers have five petals and are pansy-like appearing in early spring.  All violets can reproduce from seed and the perennial types also from rootstalks.  Grow best in moist, fertile, cool, shady areas.
