Each blossom consists of a narrow tube crowned by 4 lobes which spread sharply at right angles. The plant grows 4–6 inches tall with several branches. Though very small, star violets sometimes color a field blue. The opposite leaves are not more than 1/2 inch long, with the flower stem growing out of the leaf axil (248).
