Nuttall's Violet

Viola nuttallii


Yellow blossom with five petals. Approx 3cm across. Smooth, eliptic leaves with longitudinal veins. Grows in small clusters.


These grew in Utah mountains at approx 6800'. They were growing near Aspen trees and Box-elder Maples.


Seems very similar to Viola purpurea but leaves are very different.
