    You will want to use something that gets to the root of the plant or it will continue to pop up on you. Something like RoundUp or there is a Spectricide product as well. Cannot remember the name.... Just be sure it says that it will kill the root too and not just the top part of the plant.

    You don't have to. They will die back on their own for winter. However, it will not harm the plants should you choose to do so.

    Hopefully, this article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/bulbs/violet/wild-violets-care.htm

    If the soil is poor, some compost and/or fertilizer should help them bloom.

    No, the color of wild violets does not change. If you have lots of white ones, then it is most likely due to birds, as you originally thought. And they are prolific spreaders, self-seeding as well. Generally, the purple violets begin blooming just following the white ones (at least that's been the case with mine). I have a bed filled with white right now but in another couple weeks or so, these will fade, giving way to the purple blooms that are also planted in the bed. I'm fairly confident that your purple violets will begin blooming soon, coloring the garden with purple.

    I would personally check on ebay. You may be able to find someone on there selling them. I have found a surprising number of hard to find plants and seeds on ebay.
