Bird’s-Foot Violet on Long Island

Here is a recent photo by photographer John Heidecker of bird’s-foot violet (Viola pedata) on a roadside on Long Island. A sight like this is becoming more rare on the island and the NY Natural Heritage Program will be putting this violet on their watch list and gathering more information about its status in the state. Heritage botanist Steve Young would appreciate any information about its current locations in the state. If you know of any locations please contact Steve at You can view more beautiful flower photos at John’s Website.
