Help Please, In Identifing a Violet.

Halifax, MA(Zone 6a)

Kawonkamish (Greetings),

I am trying to identify a White/purple Violet in my garden. I asked over in Plant ID forum, but no one replied to my request for help. I am hoping some one here, could help me find out what violet this is. It looks like a wild-type Violet not a commercially-grown Pansy. I don't have a scanner or digital camera, so I am unable to take a picture of it. I have tried to describe it and give sample of what parts of it look like. I looked in plant files and couldn't find one that looked quite like it; though I am still checking. I am hoping someone here could help me ID it. Thank you. The description is below:

It's petals are white with purple towards the center like V. rostrata, but it doesn't have the long spur like V. rostrata. http://www.earlham.edu/~biol/brents/field_botany/Wildman2/viola_rostrata1.jpg

Though the purple is more pronounced like V. hederacea. http://www.mauways.co.nz/catalog/images/Viola_hederacea%20pv28.jpg

The petal veining is like V. missouriensis, but is on all of the petals. http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/63742/

And the leaf is kidney-shaped like V. renifoilia. http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/110238/


Thank you again for any help.
