Seed swap/plant ID

blueridgemtngrl(6b)April 1, 2008

I know it is a bit early for the folks in the north, but violets are starting to bloom here, and I was wondering if anyone was still interested in seeds.

I am posting pics of some I can't identify

I'd also be willing to exchange plants. It seems most of what I have don't colonize much, so I won't have a lot to share but can certainly do a few trades.

I don't know that I'm in a position to do any swapping this year, but I did want to mention that the beautiful plant in your photo might be Viola lanceolata:

Greetings Blueridgermtgrl,
I would love to swap!! Like you said though I've got to wait for things to thaw out!!
I have some plants of a purple violet that loves to spread probably V. soraria, it blooms early spring and has no scent(that I can tell). I also have a small labrador violet that should bloom this year. Oh and about a bazzilion pansies started from seed this year-I'm learning- I thought if it said "viola" it was a violet and if it said "pansy" then that's what it was! At least they're pretty mistakes!!LOL!! I wanted more violets!! Also ordered V.blanda,V.pubescens,V.pedata,and V.canadinsis(10 each) I don't know if they will flower this year and I've never ordered from this company before(fingers crossed!!). Let me know if there's anything that interests you.... Thanks -B

Hi Stephan,

Thanks for the ID. It sure looks like mine. What's interesting is that the distribution map shows counties in the southeast part of the state, and I'm in the mountains. I realize the data isn't complete, but it doesn't show any counties in my area.

Thanks again for the ID. I'll be posting a few more once more are blooming. Some I've identified but I still have a couple I haven't.
