Wildflower-Variegated Violet? Why?

cpackjr(z6 WV)April 26, 2012

I found a similar Violet two years ago in this park in southern WV. Recently I was there photographing Showy Orchis and found in the same area a large patch with this same type of variegation. Anyone know why these do this? Is it a hybrid, a cultivated escapee? It looks identical to the other violets except flower color.

Thanks,

Charles

We have some around here that are commonly called "confederate" violets, sometimes called Viola priceana.

Here is a link that might be useful: Viola sororia priceana
