Bird’s-Foot Violet (Purple and Lavender Form)

Photo of bird's-foot violet (bicolored form)

One of the color variations of bird’s-foot violet has 2 deep purple petals on top, and 3 lavender petals below. Also called “pansy violet” and “hens and roosters,” this spring wildflower can make a glade or bluff top heavenly with its pretty lavender and purple “faces.” When you see your first big colony of bird’s-foot violets, you will probably never forget it.
