The Interesting Hybrid (May 15th)

The Interesting leaves of a hybrid of violet.  
One of the parent must be Viola chaerophylloides f. sieboldiana (Higo Sumire).

     Right after we went to take pictures of Viola chaerophylloides f. sieboldiana (Higo Sumire) and Viola hirtipes (Sakura Sumire), another violet fan we know found an amazing hybrid.  So I got up early in the morning and just quickly went to see it by myself before work.

The flower of the hybrid was finishing...  I hope we can see this next year!

The leaves look totally different from the hybrid a parent of which is Viola eizanensis (Eizan Sumire).

There were two nice plants and two young ones in a small place.

There were quite a few Viola hirtipes (Sakura Sumire), Viola chaerophylloides f. sieboldiana (Higo Sumire) and (Viola phalacrocarpa (Akane Sumire) around the area.
I can tell one of the parents is Viola chaerophylloides f. sieboldiana (Higo Sumire), but I can't tell which is the other parent without open flowers, so we have to come to see it next year.

お! 急きょ行ってきたのですね!
やはりしおれしましたか・・・ 先日は花弁が反っていたので終わりだろうなと思ってました。
