Can anyone identify this plant. It grows wild in southeast Wisconsin. It grows to about 6 inches tall in sunny locations and will blanket an area. I've seen it growing in the shade also but not as profusley.
Help identify, PLEASE!
I believe it's Viola sororia (Common Blue Violet). http://www.minnesotawildflowers.info/flower/common-blue-violet
I have the western version of this all over my gardens, and generally let them be, unless they are infringing on some one else's real estate - then they get the boot. Sadly, I don't get any fragrance from mine. May be my sniffer, or may be the variety. Not sure.

Thank you, one and all for the informative responses. They're really appreciated.
You need to start a new thread in this forum with your picture. Each plant has its own separate thread from other plants.
It would also be a good idea to post a separate thread with the same picture in the 'Plant Identification' forum.

Scroll down to the bottom where it says "Start a new topic" and fill out the information you want to post. Only 1 pic allowed per post, so add more posts to your own thread with close-up shots etc.
Thank you very much; I did what you said and it has been solved. It's a "Belly ache plant"
