I found this violet growing in the woods a few years ago (zone 7) and it has bloomed every year true to color. I do not know if it has a cultivar name.
Has anyone seen this before?

I have these, too. I believe it's probably a common blue violet (V. papilionacea) with a non-fatal virus causing the striping. I could be wrong.
