Native variegated violet......Viola Walteri?
Hi there! I was out on one of my usual plant digs in some woods that are about to be cleared when I saw a beautiful variegated violet. I found some that are very small rounded heartshape. These are very small. I guess about the size of a quarter. There were alot of these connected together by underground runners. These look like the pictures of the Viola Walteri. There was another one that looked exactly the same in size and shape as the regular woods violets except that it had the same coloration of the viola walteri. These were very large. Perhaps one leaf was the size of the palm of your hand. Do you have any idea about the ID of either one. Do you think the smaller on is the Viola Walteri? Thanks for any help. These were absolutely gorgeous, and I had never seen them before. Needless to say, they are in my garden now.
