Viola lutea subsp. guestphalica

Synonyms: Viola guestphalica

Wikipedia Abstract

Viola guestphalica, common name high calamine pansy, Westphalia pansy, zinc pansy or (in German) Blaues Galmeiveilchen, is native to the region of northwestern Germany known as Westphalia. It is found in the wild only in the Districts of Paderborn, Hoexter and Hochsauerlandkreis, although it is cultivated in other locations. These are industrial areas where much of the soil is contaminated with lead, zinc and other metals, which some Viola species are more able to tolerate than some other plants.
