Bluets or Houstonia caerulea.


  1. Oooooh! I managed to grow a teeny tiny patch of these from seed. If you see these produce any seed, could you try to save some for me? I so want a yard full of bluets! They remind me of my childhood. :D

  2. I must confess that these bluets aren't in my yard. I saw them the other day at a Civil War archaeological site near the Potomac River, about 15 miles from my house. So I guess they aren't "MY" lovely weeds, are they? Unless we consider that the park land where I saw them belongs to the county and I DO pay county taxes.
