What is Viola grypoceras
Viola grypoceras or tachitsub-sumire (Scientific Name: Viola grypoceras,) is a cold-resistant perennial in the family Violaceae, native to Japan. It produces pretty flowers in early spring in fields and other places. Its Japanese name comes from the fact that the stem rises after the flower and from the word "tsubo", meaning garden. It is a short, medium-sized flower with a light blue-purple color. The petals are hairless. The leaves are green, heart-shaped and have serrated edges. The buds that form in summer are closed flowers that do not bloom, but are pollinated in the buds and bear fruit.
