Would love to have either as a ground cover. I have seeds to trade as well as larkspur, pink oxalis, and a few caladium bulbs. Thanks!

How much are you wanting. I have had the wood violets around my place for years and I can look and see what I can come up with for you. I think I met you at the ft.worth plant swap but I am having a hard time placing faces with screen names. I will check tomorrow.

I'm not sure how much I need. I would like as much as I can get. We may have met at the swap. There are so many names and face to remember. :)

I met both of you at the swap, but cannot put faces to names at this time. I also have a few wild violets that I do not want.

Can someone please post a photo or give me a Latin name for these. Google gives a Viola and an Oxalis for wild violet/wood violet. I have the Viola. Loads of it. Buckets of it. OK, that might be a slight exaggeration, but I am composting the seedlings right now. What exactly do you want? I am pulling little violas out of what was once a lawn ... and now I'm wondering if I should be saving them. At least I think they're violas. Maybe I should take a photo. Maybe I should let them grow. Now that I think about it, I have no idea what they are. How do I post a photo on here?

Sarah, Rose Lee has posted instructions over in the gallery section. I still have trouble posting pics, but you may be more computer savvy than I.

I am looking for the viola type. The oxalis is not a true wild violet but a wood sorrel. I have that too even though it is not doing so well. I am looking for a good native groundcover that others may not want. I am not a big fan of traditional turf lawns :)
