Viola sororia var. missouriensis

Woolly blue violets, commonly known as Viola sororia, are common Missouri wildflowers that grow in wooded areas, thickets, and along stream banks. A stemless, rhizomatous, low-growing perennial with downy, heart-shaped leaves and large blue-violet flowers (sometimes white with purple veins). The flowers are borne on leafless stalks. It blooms in early spring and sometimes intermittently into the summer.
