I found this at my garden, it´s a violet and the climate was hot and dry. The colors were very bright and the details were very small. It had a delicious smell.

Description

Perhaps a response to herbicide, as several unrelated shrubs across the playground were showing similar leaf curl symptoms. In the case of mahoe, it could also be Aceria melicyti mite feeding (or both).
