Viola beckwithii Torr. & A. Gray

Beckwith's violet, Western Pansy Violet

Violaceae (Violet Family)

Synonym(s):

USDA Symbol: VIBE2

USDA Native Status: L48 (N)

Bilaterally symmetrical, two-tone flowers hanging and facing outward on leafless stalks growing from a low tuft of leaves.

This species is as pretty as the garden Pansy (V. arvensis), a violet native to Europe. Sagebrush Violet or Desert Pansy (V. trinervata), found in eastern Washington and northeastern Oregon, is very similar but has leaves with 3-veined, leathery segments.
