Pioneer Violet

Viola glabella

Native Pollinator

Bright yellow flowers bloom from early spring to mid-summer on one foot tall stems. The heart shaped leaves grow at the base of the plant. Pioneer violet would make a nice groundcover along a stream bank, pond or shady rain garden. It can spread once established. The bright yellow flowers attract pollinators that use the bottom petal of the flower as a landing pad for gathering nectar.
