Beckwith's violet, Western Pansy Violet
Violaceae (Violet Family)
USDA Symbol: VIBE2
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.
