As a child, we had dear little 4-petaled flowers in our lawn near our pond. I have seen them recently (late April in Connecticut), and looked in a wildflower book. It sounds like they are called Bluets. Is there a way I can get seeds or plants for these lovely little flowers?

Bluets are Houstonia caerulea or Houstonia longifolia. "Garden in The Woods" seed catalog offers Houstonia caerulea, you can get in touch with them at: http://www.newfs.org/seeds/see.... Houstonia longifolia (Long Leaf Bluets) are available at "A World of Seeds by Carol" at: http://www.seedman.com/index/n...

Enjoy your bluets - I really love them too!
