Viola arvensis hybrids

First picture shows a single flower of an F1 Viola arvensis X Red Pansy. To the left of that Johnny-Jump-Up sized flower is a normal Viola arvensis flower for size comparison. There are two more normal Viola arvensis flowers at the right and left edges of the picture. I've pulled these non-hybrid seedlings out now. These F1 are those ones I posted about back in the winter surviving minus 2 degrees Fahrenheit with no snow cover. Notice the flowerbud in the lower left part of the picture looks like it'll have a little purple edging maybe.
The F1 seedlings ofViola arvensis X Orange Pansy have buds not quite open yet. They should all be yellow-flowered if it goes like the same cross I did years ago.
