Set B2 - Wild Flowers - card information

3. Wild Pansy
(Viola tricolor L.)

3. Wild Pansy

This little plant varies considerably but is always easily recognizable as a pansy. It is usually an annual, growing from seed. In some plants the stem is inclined to trail on the ground; in others it stands upright for six inches or so. The flowers may be either bluish-purple, or yellow, or a combination of these colours, and they are about half an inch across. The purple type, shown here, are the most attractive.
