What a wonderful nature in our Flowers cursor! This is the viola, a genus of flowering plants in the violet family Violaceae. Many species, varieties, and cultivars are grown in gardens for their ornamental flowers. These beauties typically have heart-shaped or reniform, scalloped leaves, though some have linear or palmate leaves. The simple leaves of plants with either habit are arranged alternately; the acaulescent species produce basal rosettes. These plants always have leaves with stipules that are often leaf-like.
