I agree, Violet of some sort. Once it blooms you should be able to get a more exact ID. The leaves remind me most of:
Common Blue Violet (Viola sororia)

http://uswildflowers.com/detail.php?SName=Viola%20sororia

But, these are also found in Alabama:
Woodland White Violet (Viola blanda)
http://uswildflowers.com/detail.php?SName=Viola%20blanda
Long-spur (Viola rostrata)

OMG, Violets! I've spent so much on eBay trying to get violets started, with disappointment. PLEASE anyone who would want to help me get some violet plants or seeds, let me know. I will buy them, reasonably priced, trade whatever I have someone else may want (hum...like seaweed?) . Hope someone will respond and help me get some healthy clusters of this plant.
