These little plants spread through my back yard, now they are getting bug eaten and aren’t as happy. I’ve never seen anything like them and wonder if they came in on a nursery plant

    I’m starting to think they are color mutations of the common violets we have…? They are pink and green when small and the pink turns to cream/white color when larger.

    Maybe the Manchurian violet ‘Fuji Dawn’ (Viola manshurica). Check it out and see if you have a match. Best wishes!

    Oh I think that is it!! Manchurian? Does this mean it’s from Asia and came in with something I bought?

    Could be or from your neighbors, it’s hard to tell. Native & non native plants show up volunteer time after time in my own garden. But none has the pretty leaves like yours. Best wish to you and your beautiful surprise ‘gift’.
