"Viola banksii", commonly known as native violet, is sold and grown throughout garden nurseries and grown and loved in gardens around Australia, especially in the east. For many years it was known as "Viola hederacea", however, the species complex was revised in 2004 by Kevin Thiele, with the name "Viola banksii" being published in 2003 by Kevin Thiele and Suzanne Prober.
