Here's a clue.
The foliage emerges pink in Spring.
After the flowers are finished blooming, the foliage turns mottled.
Here's what it looks like in July.
You're making it too easy for us, and the name is behind that black box in the upper left hand corner.
I didn't cover the name, I cut it out.
O.K. Mr. Horticulture, if it's so easy, then would you please share the name with all of us? ;-))
I'm starting with a EPIMEDIUMS variety????
Sorry, not even close.
Is this a Hosta? It looks somewhat like one. There are so many varieties of these.
Much smaller than a Hosta.
The flower should be more familiar looking than the foliage.
Now we're getting somewhere.
You continue to amaze me, Kt!
Family - Violaceae
Genus - Viola
Anyone care to go for the species or cultivar?
(It's not Variegated)
I can give clues if you get stumped.
Viola riviniana ex 'Purpurea' (Syn V. labradorica) is the closest I know of, but I know that this is not it's correct ID.
Species is different, don't know of a clue for it, since it's such a weird scientific name.
But here's two clues for the cultivar:
A mountain, plus another name for morning.
No, that's not it.
(the mountain is a famous dormant volcano)
VIOLA mandshurica Fuji Dawn : Violet, Pansy
Here is a link that might be useful: Fuji Dawn Violet
Eric, good job, you got it!
I can't remember where I bought this one. It may have been Bluestone Perennials, since I buy a lot of plants from them. But when I clicked on your link to read the description, I noticed it said zones 6-9. Since I'm zone 5, I probably bought it from another source that said it was hardy to zone 5. Anyway, it survived my winter just fine under a nice mulch of Oak leaves.
Bring on a new guessing game!
