A pretty plant, growing in the woods with leafy stems, from four to fourteer inches high, with leafy stipules and smooth, rather light green leaves, deeply lobed, so that they look unlike most Violel leaves. The flowers are more or less clustered, an inch or more across, with bright yellow petals, veined with purple inside, tinged with purplish-brown outside, the two side petals with a little hairy patch at the base inside.
