Submitter has sample
EDRR Status: Local expert notified
Shiny leaves, sort of shaped like violets, but more shiny and tender, with a yellow flower just beginning to open. There were quite a few, but probably within about a 10-foot diameter circle at most. My specimen I brought is dried out now, but still recognizable.
I would like to go back and work on this patch, but am VERY busy right now. I will be seeing someone from the Eugene Garden Club tomorrow, which is sort of across the alley, and will ask her if anyone at the Garden Club is into dealing with invasives.
