Common Blue Violet
Common Name: Common Blue Violet
Latin Name: Viola Sororia
There's a path that leads from Pickering Beach Rd. to Harwood Avenue. It's a path that's like a wide meadow here in Ajax. This plant was found growing next to a fence, it was moist and soggy. This Violet looks alot like other violet's but the leaves set it apart from being the Early Blue Violet, which leaves look totally different. The leaves of this plant can be candied and are very high in vitamins.
Blooms: March to May
