About Stamp

The Canada Violet, Viola canadensis L., generally grows between two and four decimetres high. It flowers from May to July , and sometimes later. The Canada Violet is found in forests and wooded uplands from New Brunswick to Ontario. Violets, of which there are approximately 40 Canadian species and varieties, are noted for their biological complexity For example, the Western Canada Violet, Viola rugulosa Greene, which may be found from the Thunder Bay area to British Columbia, is somewhat similar to Viola canadensis L. and may only be a variety of it, according to some authorities. Heather Cooper, a Toronto artist who is noted for the delicacy of her work and her subtle sense of colour, designed this 15¢ definitive to add to the Wildflowers of Canada series.
