Carolina Violet, Viola villosa, VZ

I was told the name of this plant by the landowner. The leaves are the correct shape. Hopefully it is a correct identification.

Upper flower petals are mostly purple (no photo). Lower and side petals are white with purple veins, solid purple tips and very hairy towards the center. Leaves and stems are quite fuzzy. Bracts on the peduncle are red and clasp the stem tightly.
