Dianne Machesney found this Halberd-leaved Violet blooming at the Cucumber Falls Trail in Ohiopyle State Park last week.
A halberd is a long pole with a battle ax; the ax always has a hook on the back end. It was a popular weapon in the 14th and 15th centuries.
What do you think? Is this a “halberd” leaf?
