This leaf was labeled 'Bright Yellow Star'.

I find nothing on that name and have forgotten where I got the leaf (whether in trade, or purchased).

This photo is pretty accurate except the color is a deeper royal shade of burgundy (my description)

When I saw first bloom I chalked it up to obvious mislabel, I thought I would get a yellow star blossom.

Now that a 2nd set of blossoms are forming I suddenly realize the 'Bright Yellow Star' could allude to the brilliant yellow stamen.

Can any body shed light on my beautiful flower?

It's really difficult,almost impossible sometimes, to identify a mislabeled violet,but I will try my best and let you know what I come up with.
