Looking for ID on this viola. Maybe Viola palmata. It grows wild here, usually found beneath large oaks or along woods edge.

It does look like Viola palmata but according to the USDA, it doesn't grow in Texas. But it does grow in Louisiana. So when you say north east Texas, how far north and how far east would that be?

Viola triloba is now listed as a synonym of V. palmata and it does grow in Texas.
