  1. dog violet

    A dog violet is a type of flowering plant in the Violaceae science family. The term most commonly refers to any non-scented species within the Viola genus, especially the common dog violet (Viola riviniana) which is native to Europe and parts of Asia. This perennial plant typically blooms with purple flowers in the spring and prefers shady locations. The term "dog" in the name is thought to be a way to distinguish it from the sweet or English violets, which are fragrant.
