Birds Foot Violet 

 

With two different color schemes in its petals and delicate finger-shaped leaves, it is easy to see how the Birds Foot Violet got its name. The leaf fronds splay themselves out like a bird extending its foot. It is native to central and eastern North America, primarily in sandy areas and dry soil without many nutrients. Perhaps related to its hardy and stubborn growth, the Viola pedata is antisocial. Grows away from other plants, especially larger ones it could lose nutrients too. It is tiny and grows in large groups of its peers, often rushing into new road cuts and other fresh, dry dirt areas. Birds Foot Violet needs a medium amount of sunshine; too much sun could kill it just as easily as too little. It tends to grow in short, wide clusters. Except for Florida, Birds Foot Violet is native to every state East of the Mississippi and can thrive in the oddest of places. Such as rocky and poorly drained soil and a seemingly dead and dry patch of dirt. A rainbow of pinks, purples, blues, and even reds paints the Birds Foot Violet in vivid colors and adds to its distinct look and habits.
