    The leaves do look similiar, but this was a climbing vine with more trumpet shaped blue flowers. I got the rooting from a yard in Nashville of a friend. They were not aware of the name but it was a beautiful vine and blue flowers on a trellis. Thanks

    Could possibly be a common morning glory, although the leaves here appear toothed. That makes me agree that it looks more like a violet. Are you sure this was a cutting, and not dug up from around your friend’s vine?

    Send more pictures when it starts climbing. Until then I’m leaning towards wild violet also.

    Thanks for your responses. Yes, it was dug up next to the vine. Since this photo was taken it has really grown alot with multiple plants- I have never seen anything reproduce like this plant. I am also leaning toward the violet as the leaves are the same. However, I have never seen a climbing violet but it is not a morning glory. A great plant and look forward to maybe a bloom before the summer is out! I will keep you posted.
