    U. longifolia is one of the easiest large bladderworts to grow, tolerant of a wide range of wet soil types and temperatures; leaves often reach between 6-12" in length (some may grow even longer), and if given mild seasonal cues will often send up numerous stalks in mid winter to early spring that sport several large, brilliant violet and yellow blooms up to almost 2" across. Packets contain 50+ seeds; these should be able to be cold-stored for long periods if necessary and should germinate readily on moist soil. Plants grow best in an airy sphagnum or peat/perlite mix, kept very moist to even waterlogged. Seeds are shipped in padded envelopes to avoid damage in transit, via USPS mail. US shipping only. As seeds can take time and sometimes special treatments in order to germinate properly, returns cannot be accepted and refunds are not available upon receipt of the seed packets.

    A relative of the more familiar U. dichotoma, this bladderwort is an Australian endemic that produces sparse mats of thin leaves and stalks that bear small but beautiful multi-hued violet and yellow/white flowers. Germination of many Utricularia seeds is not always a simple affair, but may be good for a challenge determining seasonal, chemical, or other cues to trigger sprouting, and this species is likely to be similar. Packets contain approx. 40-60+ seeds. Seeds are shipped in padded envelopes to avoid damage in transit, via USPS mail (First Class). US shipping only.

    This is a cross between a cultivar of my own making and a famous giant; 'Red Beret' grows like a red-lidded alata on steroids and maintains a crisp, almost military-precise cut of color under the lid and sharp veins while almost patternless on the exterior, and "Lunch Box" is a 'Leah Wilkerson' mimic with richer color. Offspring should be large, marked with stark red coloration under the lid and in the throat, and lightly white-spotted in the upper pitcher and lid. Owing to the size and vigor of both parents, they should also be fast-growing, large, and fairly cold-hardy. Packets contain approximately 20 seeds, and require cold stratification.

    A whopper of a cross between two famous parents; "Lunch Box" is a richer colored 'Leah Wilkerson' mimic that gets huge and develops high-contrast white and red pitchers, while 'Waccamaw' is one of the most sought-after, clean-colored var. atropurpurea out there with short but elegant blood red pitchers and yellow interior tubes that age to the same crimson color.

    If you like cantaloupe or other muskmelons and have a penchant for small and colorful, this is a great one to try out. The scrambling vines bear little yellow flowers that give way to roughly 4 inch long, ovular melons striped in rusty red-orange and cream/yellow, the flesh inside a creamy yellowish color similar to the "vine peach" melong and, in my experience so far, a bit less sweet than cantaloupe. Best started indoors and planted out after frost for a long growing season. Packets contain approx. 15 seeds each.

    Once considered to be a possible new carnivorous plant group, Proboscidea and its relatives are now relegated to para-carnivorous at best, or more commonly "murderous plants." This species can get large, adult plants measuring several feet across with multiple branches, leaves held on thick petioles and roughly spade-shaped. At the ends of each branch spikes of large, fleshy, 5-lobed flowers form, typically pale pinkish mauve in color with darker spots and a yellow stripe leading into the throat. These flowers also have two-lobed stigmas that move when touched, the lobes folding together to capture pollen or avoid damage. All parts of the plant are covered in tiny, sticky glandular hairs that regularly capture small insects (defense against gnats and aphids) and will attract small assassin bugs that feed on the victims. Pollinated flowers develop unique pods that, when young, can actually be harvested and cooked as a vegetable, but when mature shed their fleshy outer coating and the narrow tips split to form a pair of wickedly sharp hooks used to snag animals and carry them about to disperse seeds (occasionally crippling the animals, and thereby providing the seeds with fertilizer). Seed packs will contain approximately 10+ seeds. These seeds appear to have a fridge-storage shelf life of only a few years, so sow quickly at the start of the growing season. Please note: Proboscidea louisianica cannot be shipped to Washington State. Seeds are shipped in padded envelopes to avoid damage in transit, via USPS mail (First Class or Priority).

    A small but fast-growing butterwort found through much of the southeastern US and the Caribbean, this version from Texas grows to often not much more than an inch in diameter, and produces flowers almost the same size that start out nearly white and age to lavender over time. No special treatment needed for the seeds, but the seedlings and plants do need regular feeding to grow and produce seeds (it's a short-lived annual and needs reseeding regularly). Packets contain approx. 30+ seeds. Seeds are shipped in padded envelopes to avoid damage in transit, via USPS mail (First Class). US shipping only.

    Only one packet left of this rare locality; the Primrose butterwort is a fairly easy to grow swamp-loving temperate from the same region as many American pitcher plants are found, and this form is a pure white-flowered version from the famed Blackwater River area in northern Florida. The seeds have a small chance of being outcrossed with a standard purple-flowered form, but are more likely to have been the result of a selfing and so should produce many white-flowered babies. Packet contains approx. 20-30 seeds. Seeds are shipped in padded envelopes to avoid damage in transit, via USPS mail (First Class). US shipping only. As seeds can take time and sometimes special treatments in order to germinate properly, returns cannot be accepted and refunds are not available upon receipt of the seed packets.

    It's tiny, it's weedy, it's cute; the only real trouble with this species is remembering to feed it regularly so it makes lots of seeds! This annual butterwort is native to western Europe and the Mediterranean region, and often doesn't even exceed an inch in diameter when full-grown with short ovular leaves that often sport impressive red veins. The self-pollinating flowers are tiny and tube-shaped, with white petals and a purple tube and spur. To germinate, just sow on wet soil and wait. Packets contain approx. 30+ seeds.

    Collected from plants that grow wild on our property in Platteville, this is a Colorado native but can be found through much of the Great Plains and into the mountain foothills. Seeds germinate after a cool winter stratification and like sandy, well-drained soils. Mature plants tend not to get much more than 12-18 inches tall, and in mid to late spring, early summer on a prolonged season, will reward you with some of the most electric to sky blue flowers you will ever see in your life, tinted with hints of pink or lavender.

    Commonly known as the Scurfy Pea, this is a wildflower native to much of the interior US, across the Great Basin and Plains and just into the woodlands to the east. Plants can grow to over 3 feet high in some cases, developing spindly branching bushes of short oblanceolate leaves and numerous stalks at the branch tips sporting sometimes dozens of small, lavender to electric violet pea-like flowers. each flower will develop a pod containing a single seed. Packets contain approximately 20 seeds; may benefit from cold stratification or scarification of the seeds to germinate, or simply patience after sowing.
