Common Dog Violet
 

 

Common and Early Dog Violets have flowers that are blue-violet and unscented and leaves that are heart shaped. The expert way to distinguish the Common Dog Violet from the Early variety is to look at the back of the flower, where the spur protrudes. The Common one has a pale, sometimes creamy coloured spur than the darker, violet one of the Early.

In flower during Spring and sometimes again in late summer. Common throughout in woods, on grassland and in hedgerows.
