Birdfoot Violet: Viola pedata or Birdfoot Violet is also known as the mountain pansy. It is the largest of the many violets native to our mountains. They are usually bluish, but can range from white to purple. They bloom from March to June. They are a butterfly and bee host plant. Some butterflies lay their eggs on the stems, the caterpillars eat the leaves and bees and butterflies eat the nectar.

Have you noticed how elusive the scent of violets is? A major component of the violet scent is a ketone compound called ionone. This compound temporarily desensitizes the scent receptors in your nose. One sniff is all you get. The fragrance is still there, but your nose can’t smell it.

Look for them in dry fields, clearings in the woods and along the roadside.
