Plant Expert Needed!   [definition of an Expert: former drip under pressure]

I have a number of Bachmann Big Hauler Gondola cars.  They are about 3 1/2 inches by 15 inches.  I would like some Small flowering plants that I can put in them and run them at Train Shows and other events.  I live in the south central Texas area just north of San Antonio.

I have been to a number of plant and garden shops in the area.  Their 'small plants' are 4 inches to 6 inches tall and 3 inches to 4 inches wide.

Yesterday I found a 2 inch tall flowering plant in my front lawn and put it in a small flower pot.



Can anyone identify this plant?  Do you know where I can get seeds for it so I can plant them to be in flower for each train show during the year?

Here it is in the gondola:



I would plant 15 or so plants in each car.

Right now I have these plants I have to run but they will get way to big to keep running.  This car is 3 1/2 inches by 9 inches:



Thanks,

Nathan
