Viola x wittrockiana 'Purple Rain' and 'Purple Baron,' please. They are fine as they are. Rolling my eyes.

Sorry, Tee. I just approved a bunch of your proposals before coming to this forum, so you may have to change them back. Smiling

Evan took care of that earlier yesterday and they were left as they should be. It was also noted that Viola x williamsiana is really not a recognized species and I'm trying to get the rest of those names changed. Although used commonly and fairly extensively, the name was apparently formulated by an English seed company many years ago (as best as I can trace its origin) and isn't recognized in any official taxonomic databases.

The same applies to Viola x williamsii, again as far as I can ascertain.
