Could you tell me the species please? Also, there's a smaller violet behind the big one...I know that's rue to the left but directly behind the big violet there's a much smaller one....anyone know the species name?

Thank-you!

Viola pedatifida...just a guess.

RE: violets

I think you're right for the small one in the back ...but I think here (eastern US) the species is V. pedata?....that's what the distribution map shows. They look similar.

Thank-you!

They may all be Viola palmata which has leaves that vary depending on the time of year they are produced.

RE: violets

BTW there is no Rue (Ruta graveolens) in your picture. There is some foliage which could be either Thalictrum (Meadow Rue) or Aquilegia (Columbine).

Lycopus: So the deeply lobed one at the back and these big ones in front are the same species? Thanks for the info! I did not know that!

Flora: Thank-you. I was careless w/my common names. This place has Thalictrum dioicum, Thalictrum pubescens and columbine...but in the pic it's one of the Thalictrum sp. There is no Ruta here (I hope!)

OK - you clearly know what you have there. I just thought maybe someone had told you a misunderstood common name and you might be expecting something different.
