Report of the State Botanist for 1921
Viola lanceolata × pallens, hyb. nov.
This was taken at first for V. primulifolia because of its broad leaves. Further observations of it during 1921 showed that the petaliferous flowers were always sterile, the flower and its peduncle soon withering and never developing capsules. The leaves simulate those of the more southern V. primulifolia but are entirely smooth and in texture more like those of V. pallens.
Shore of Lake Harris near Newcomb, growing with V. pallens and V. lanceolata. House 7254, June 6–12, 1921; August 1–10, 1921.
