Species

 Viola glabella Nutt. pioneer violet

The largest native violet, with cheerful little blooms.

Pointed, toothed leaves form on the ends of the stems and delightful yellow flowers with purple striations reach upwards on fragile-looking stalks.

Yellow violets like moisture and spread quite eagerly.

They are native from Alaska to the Sierra Nevada and east to Montana, USDA zones 5-8.

They are also found in northeast Asia.
