Viola odorata var. imberbis

My first white Sweet Violet of the year. This is Viola odorata var. imberbis - note the pale pinkish spur. The other white Sweet Violet, Viola odorata var. dumetorum has a dark purple spur.

This is the first record for Wexford of var. imberbis.

It was a good afternoon for the varieties of Sweet Violets as I also saw var. dumetorum, var. odorata & var. praecox.
