Introduction and description
Viola tricolor, known as (exhaustingly) heartsease, heart's ease, heart's delight, tickle-my-fancy, Jack-jump-up-and-kiss-me, come-and-cuddle-me, three faces in a hood, or love-in-idleness, is a common European wild flower, growing as an annual or short-lived perennial.
It has been introduced into North America, where it has spread widely, and is known as the wild pansy; in effect, before the cultivated pansies were developed, "pansy" was an alternative name for the wild form.
