Hello fellow gardeners/members! In between my Common Fiddleneck (Amsinckia intermedia) I have these very small beautiful purple flowers. Anyone have any idea what they are? All help is appreciated!

Thanks





Buds: (sorry the focus isn't very good, but they were very small as I said đŸ˜†)

I don't think it is, but does anyone think that maybe it is Sweet Violet (Viola odorata) ?

Wrong color, wrong shape of flower , and no violet leaves in sight, so no.

Ah yes, I was pretty sure it wasn't, so thank you for confirming! Do you have any idea what plant it is though?

Thanks!

It reminds me a bit of spiderwort but not sure it's that either.

Thanks @pepper23! But I think you're right, it doesn't seem to be spiderwort. I was just about to post something else on here giving a little bit more info, but then you said what you said about spiderwort, and I went and had to look it up myself Hilarious!
So what I was going to say is that it doesn't grow very tall at all. The maximum height I've seen it at is probably around 6-7 inches.

The cluster of buds does look like spiderwort, and the bloom reminds me of meadow pink. but the leaves (if I'm looking at the right ones) don't look like either.
