Wildflower-Variegated Violet? Why?

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.

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
