Hello !

Easy to answer :-)
Viola (general latin name) is the family. In that family there are 2 members: pansy and violet.
Violette is just the French for violet :-)
The problem: all names started with viola so that U CAN'T make the difference between pansy and violet thanks the name :-(
Once when I was a totally newbie I bought a viola Rebeca and discover it was a pansy (YUKY !!!)

Take care.
