Help identify, PLEASE!

Milwaukee, WI

Hello everyone,

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.

Looks like a violet to me.

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.

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"
