Common Dog-violet everywhere in Cornwall it seems

with No Comments

It doesn’t matter where we go in Cornwall at the moment, there are huge numbers of Common Dog-violet colouring the scene. From the hedgerows to the fields above the cliffs, from the woodland to the open roadsides, everywhere has bright patches of these violets.

Insight: Common Dog-violet (Viola riviniana) is the commonest of the nine or so violets in Britain.

The spur, which is whitish, notched at the tip and paler than the petals, is a useful aid in identification.
