Well, I think Dave and Redrose have the same wildflowers, as she posted a photo of this plant a short time ago. It is everywhere here, and I like that because it blooms when almost nothing else does, very early. It has a very unsubstantial root system, takes little or nothing from your soil, and makes a nice groundcover in a new garden until you get something else established. That is some pretty fancy camera work, getting so close to that little plant and showing that small bloom so well. Evert, we do call it henbit around here.
