Viola riviniana rosea ? ID ?

etii(France 8)April 5, 2006

Hi folks :-)

Just find in a friend's garden some violets (I'm sure some treasure are somewhere). Sulfurea, odorata, hirta, alba, suavis (I was so suprised to see so many different violets in that kind of wild garden) and 2 strange ones.

The first one is a kind of pale pink (see picture): I named it riviniana rosea just because it's making stems and don't know what it is.

The second one (sorry, when I brought back the plant the blooms had passed away) is the same except that the flower's heart is more pink. It could be viola hirta but without hairs and with stems.

None of them have a smell. Do you have any idea what whose violets could be ? Natural hybrids ?

All the best.

Sorry for that stupid post. In fact, I found the name of my two violets from my friend's garden:

The first one is viola mirabilis ("étonnante" in French: astonishing in English):

The second one is viola reichenbachiana ("des bois" in French: from woods in English):

Enjoy those beauties :-)
