Recent taxonomic changes have this yellow-flowered violet currently called Viola eriocarpa, but you may also know it as Viola pubescens var. scabriuscula or Viola pubescens var. eriocarpa. This woodland wildflower produces bright yellow, purple-veined blooms in spring. A “caulescent” species, its flowers and smooth, heart-shaped leaves are attached to a stem rather than emerging from ground level. It’s usually in the range of 4 to 8 inches tall, occasionally up to 1 foot in ideal conditions. Plants grow best in partial shade and average to moist soil. Smooth yellow violet is native throughout much of the eastern half of North America. I gathered these seeds from plants growing wild here at Hayefield in Bucks County, PA. Hardiness range is usually Zones 3 to 8.
Collected in early to mid July 2023. At least 15 seeds. PA ecotype. Shipping to US addresses only.
