Field pansy flower growing in an uncultivated arable field margin with other weeds

Field Margin Flowers 9 – Field Pansy

Scroll down to content

This post features Field Pansy (Viola arvensis). The pale creamy flowers with a delicate pattern are only a little bigger than the blue Common Field-speedwell and orange Scarlet Pimpernel. Awkward to photograph because the flowers tended to look downwards rather than up. An unobtrusive plant that is difficult to spot among the other native flowering plants occupying the uncultivated ground on the edge of the big maize field in the village.
