Common violet leaves are kidney-shaped to oval with heart-shaped bases. They grow from the base of the plant on long, slender, slightly hairy stalks.
The flowers are pansy-like, white to blue to purple, sometimes yellow. The side petals are hairy near the base. Common violet flowers appear early in spring.
Violets are very shade-tolerant and occur in moist, shady, fertile sites.
