CULT: Ground Cover

Good evening iris lovers:  For many years, vinca has been coming up in the 
iris beds, only a couple.  Since it doesn't even germinate until after the iris 
have bloomed and is very tolerant of dry conditions, I have let it stay and it 
provides some color out there.  This year I sowed some vinca seed amongst the 
iris and will report later how it does.

Around here (East Texas) wood sorrel (oxalis) is a most misbehaving sort of 
plant.  Once it makes a tuber it can only removed by digging out the tuber.  
Since it seems to dislike dry and I keep my iris beds moist only in blooming 
season, it doesn't invade there.  It blows over the fences though and has 
populated the open woodlands next to me.
