Kindly ID.
Thanks.

Violas?

Calgary, AB(Zone 3b)

Yes, they sure look like Viola x wittrockiana.

Beautiful, BC(Zone 9b)

Either that or Caltha palustris http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/12/

Louisville, KY(Zone 6b)

I was more inclined to go with Caltha, but I noticed a few 3 lobed leaves in the center. I'm not sure if that helps to identify it or not... just pointing it out.

Foliage doesn't look like Viola to me, and I also noted the 3-lobed leaves. My guess is it's a weedy Ranunculus sp, e.g. R. sceleratus http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/160424/

Brunswick, GA

This looks at lot like a young Ranunculus abortivus, "Kidneyleaf Buttercup". The basal leaves are not divided as they would be in R. sceleratus.
Ranunculus abortivus is a widespread native in the south, and in damp soils a common "weed".

Spring, TX

If you poison it and it continue to grow it is a weed.

It baffles me how there are so many coming up in a pot like as if I've sown the seeds. I'll just get rid of them.
Thanks all for solving!
