This is a somewhat unusual violet in Indiana. These pics were taken at the Wendell & Evelyn Dygert Nature Preserve in northeast Indiana. This and numerous other nature preserves are owned and operated by Acres Land Trust, an awesome organization that owns over 5000 acres in northeast Indiana and parts of Michigan and Ohio. They have been around since 1960 and are one of the biggest and most influential land trusts in Indiana.
|The bracts at the base of the leaves are jagged|
|The plants have a different "look" to them than other violets|
