HERE IS ANOTHER ODDBALL!
Zones: 4-9, Odd shaped rhizomes with unusual green and black (dark purple) blooms, fragrant and bloom early. due to the green color the right placement is important for the best view. Like a contrasting wall or something in the background that is not green!

Oooohh, how striking! I didn't realize they were fragrant, hmmm...that has me thinking I should try those! Bet they'd be lovely with those little black Violas.
