Viola cheiranthifolia is a species of the genus Viola. It is also known as the Teide violet and Teide daisy. This plant is exclusively found in the dry and stony caldera of the volcano Teide on the Canary Island of Tenerife. It survives there in altitudes of 2000-3000m. Most of the time it is hiding under the rocks. It is only visible for three weeks in spring, when it comes out to the surface for pollination. It reaches heights of 6 to 7 inches.
