Hopefully not Ebay. Hard to say what you would get. Smiling

Search by google, many plant sites sell seeds and rarely plants.

How fun! Wish the pics had some kind of scale object. I can't get a sense of how small they are. I absolutely love tiny plants. Some spots in my beds look so bare because there's a tiny piece of this or that I'm trying to start as a little cutting, but most of those would eventually get much bigger. I was always the kid on my knees in "the grass" finding and being amazed by any tiny flowers there too. Truly minuscule plants are rare and cool, IMVHO!

Really tiny, but they clump like crazy if you leave them be for a few years. They have very large taproots.

Great photo Keith. A size reference helps a lot. I don't think I'll be getting any - I would misplace something that small for sure. Smiling

Keep us posted!
