This sweet little flower is the Beckwourth violet, also called the sagebrush violet. It has some sort of symbiotic relationship with sagebrush and they only grow together. The violet usually grows underneath the sagebrush, so it’s hard to see unless you are specifically looking for it, and it is actually much smaller than you see here, only about 2-3 inches high. I love it because it’s one of the few two-colored violets around.
