|notes:||"The flowers in mot of the specimens are very small and suggest being intermediate between type and later cleistogamous ones. V. dumetorum produces similar intermediate blooms. - Ida M. Roper. This is one of the small forms of hirta (Not calcarea, certainly) in the semi-cleistogamous stage, through which all violets pass gradually, until they arrive at the stage where petals fail them. Of calcarea characters this fails in the very perceptible spurn and in the non-conduplicate folding of the later leaves. - E. S. Gregory."|
