Hello Hoy, some years ago I received seed of O. hederae from the exchange. I have one plant in flower now and will try to collect seed for you.

Hi Hoy

Did you ever find a source for the seeds ?

I would be interested to know how to increase these. My neighbour has it/them on ivy and Verbena bonariensis many meters apart, and I found it last week on the edge of my sand bed, apparently on self sown Rosemarie. Is this from wind blown seed or me/him walking from one garden to the other transferring it? Any good books/articles on the subject?

No. I've got a few seeds from friends but that's all.
