Red Velvet

Did you know?  The common names “pansy” and “violet” are often used interchangeably. When a distinction is made, plants considered to be pansies have four petals pointing upwards, and only one pointing down.  Violets have three petals pointing up and two pointing down.  Your guess is as good as mine on this one!
