    Yes 0zzy, SE NC would be part of that particular violet's native range. I'll see if I can get April to take a look see. I stumbled upon this thread quite by accident and don't normally frequent this forum as people are generally asking for IDs on carnivorous plants and I can barely identify my own let alone somebody else's so I leave that to the experts.

    Here's one I have flowering here right now-

    Laura that's native to New England. Especially New Hampshire. Can't remmeber the name though.
    Alpha I didn't know African Violets get very big. Usually mine grow only 6 inches across which is about normal violet size. When I remember to water it (If it does not die because of no water) I can get up to 18 flowers at once.

    Tre, would you please go on line and tell me the bi-nomial to that viola that you think mine is that is native to New England especially New Hampshire? The viola I photographed and posted above is the one that has been stumping all of us for a few years. We had finally come to the conclusion that it might be a hybrid, whether it is a naturally occurring hybrid or not is anyone's guess. I'm sort of hoping it's native still.

    I have African Violets here and one of mine is the size of a dinner plate.

    Ozzy's plant is Viola Lanceolata.
