(Viola sororia)

The Violet (Viola sororia), designated as the official state flower of New Jersey, is a charming and delicate wildflower known for its striking purple-blue petals and heart-shaped leaves. This native perennial plant blooms early in the spring, carpeting meadows, woodlands, and gardens with its vivid blossoms. Its name, "sororia," signifies sisterhood, reflecting the tendency of these dainty flowers to grow closely together in clusters. The Violet not only adds a burst of color to the New Jersey landscape but also holds cultural significance, embodying the state's natural beauty and resilience in the face of adversity.
