article by John M. Gillett
"Violets are synonymous with spring," begins this 11-page article on the 15 violet species of our region. A brief introduction to the genus is followed by species descriptions and keys to the three main groups of violets: stemmed, stemless blue, and stemless white violets. The work is lavishly illustrated with drawings by Marcel Jomphe and two "habitat sketches" by Sally Gadd.
