    PLEASE CHECK LOCAL REGULATIONS BEFORE PURCHASING. A fast-growing annual plant native to much of the US west coast and southwest, Coyote Tobacco  is a relatively slender-leaved plant that grows up to 3 feet or more in height and is covered in small, sticky glands. The small, tubular flowers are produced in profusion at the tips of the stems, ending in a five-petaled star and primarily blooming at night (see second photo, a large plant illuminated at night looks like a starscape). Used by Amerindian tribes as a ceremonial tobacco, today the plant's use can be primarily as a native hawkmoth attractant; larvae feed on the plants while the moths pollinate the flowers at night (and interestingly, if too many caterpillars are present they can make the plant switch to blooming in the daytime to reduce predation). Packets contain at least 100+ small seeds, that require no special treatment. Seeds are shipped in padded envelopes to avoid damage in transit, via USPS mail (First Class or Priority). 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. If a package is lost in transit, please contact as soon as possible.

    While I have had its relative laevicaulis (the Giant Blazingstar) available in seed form for a while, this species known as the Bractless Blazingstar is a Great Plains native (these seeds are collected from our property) and slightly more suited to midwestern climates but the same sandy soil preference. Generally biennial in nature, plants grow as flat rosettes of velcro-textured leaves in their first year to build energy, then spike into tall stems up to 3 feet high and branching in the second, topped with flowers up to 4 inches wide that look like a white firework. Packets will contain approx. 20+ seeds each. Seeds are shipped in padded envelopes to avoid damage in transit, via USPS mail (First Class or Priority). US shipping only.

    Native to much of the western US, this is a cold-hardy biennial semi-shrub that lives its first year of life as a spreading rosette of heavily lobed, velcro-texture leaves. In its second year it grows anywhere from 2-5 feet tall, branching heavily and producing at the end of each branch one to three night- to morning-blooming flowers that can be nearly 6 inches across and are brilliantly lemon yellow, with a spray of filiform stigmas sticking out of the middle. These flowers are followed by odd cylindrical pods with the same velcro-like texture as the leaves, and each contain numerous flat blackish seeds. Sowing a handful of seeds two different years can ensure establishment of blooming generations every year. Packets contain approx. 30+ seeds, and require a 2-3 month cold stratification to germinate. Seeds are shipped in padded envelopes to avoid damage in transit, via USPS mail (First Class or Priority). 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 west-coast native aster also called common madia, this annual wildflower looks a lot better than its name suggests (which actually comes from the oily, fragrant leaves that smell like an herbal tar). Plants are scrambling semi-shrubs that can grow up to almost 4 feet tall, each stem branching profusely and tipped by 2 inch wide, bright yellow daisy-like flowers. The seeds can be eaten, baked like sunflower seeds or ground into flour. Packets contain approx. 20+ seeds, and require no special treatment to germinate. Seeds are shipped in padded envelopes to avoid damage in transit, via USPS mail (First Class or Priority). US shipping only.

    A delicate species for the collector of wildflowers and US natives; unlike most other lupines this is a fast-growing annual that re-seeds every year. A west-coast native, it can be found in a variety of habitats from California to Washington. Plants average 8-30 inches tall, developing a splayed rosette of pinwheel-shaped leaves around a central stalk that sometimes branches as it grows, and is topped by small clusters of tiny but beautiful flowers that open indigo-blue and white and fade over time in the lighter parts to pink and purplish. Photos are of flowers from the seeds source; packets contain around 20 seeds each. No special treatment needed for germination. 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.

    As the Rich Sweetness is to cantaloupe, so this is to a honeydew. The standard melon vine and yellow blooms produce squat, rounded and slightly ribbed melons up to about 4 inches in diameter, that when mature develop a striking orange color with two-tone green bands in between. The interior is mildly and musky-flavored and bright green, good for adding to smoothies or salads. Packets contain approx. 15 seeds each. Seeds are shipped in padded envelopes to avoid damage in transit, via USPS mail (First Class or Priority). US shipping only.

    Originating from a wild Colorado locality years ago and since having been propagated in cultivation, this form of Rocky Mountain Iris is a spectacular plant in late spring bloom. Averaging around 2 feet tall when it flowers, the slender falls are a brilliant lavender-blue with white and yellow markings around the base while the standars are a similar, occasionally slightly darker hue. Though I cannot promise, this population did also contain pure white individuals whose genetics may be present among these seeds. The seeds require a 3 month cold stratification in winter, and may take 2-3 stratification cycles before germinating. Packets contain approx. 20+ seeds. Seeds are shipped in padded envelopes to avoid damage in transit, via USPS mail (First Class or Priority). US shipping only.

    Known as the tri-lobed Hibiscus or Flower-of-a-Hour, this annual flower is an Old World native that has been introduced to the US and is often grown as an ornamental as well as purportedly having some medicinal properties (at the least, like most other Hibiscus it's a fairly non-toxic plant). Plants can grow up to 2 feet tall, with mildly branching stems and tri-lobed, bumpy-looking leaves as well as translucent sepals that protect developing flowers and seed pods, all covered in fine hairs. The blooms are early-morning, very ephemeral things, as their common name suggests popping open for only an hour or two (unless it's cool or cloudy) to display beautiful white petals with deep maroon bases. Seed packs contain approx. 20 seeds. Nothing special required to germinate these. 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.

    My back yard has become an experimental breeding ground for brilliantly colored giant sunflowers, of which these seeds may produce a variety of appearances from. Influence has been had from Mammoth Russian, Evening Sunset, and a handful of other cultivars, producing plants that range anywhere from 5-12 feet tall and produce anything from several 8 inch blooms on branching stems to a singular bloom up to 15 inches across. Colors too can vary from yellow flushed with oranges and rust at the petal bases to entirely deep rusty red or maroon. Great for making garden borders or a sunflower forest to wander through, and some may even produce seeds big enough to roast and eat. Packets contain approximately 20+ seeds and require no special treatment to germinate. Seeds are shipped in padded envelopes to avoid damage in transit, via USPS mail (First Class or Priority). 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.

    One of several US native species of blanketflower (though the exact species is unknown), this brilliant perennial produces fuzzy clusters of leaves from which tall stalks shoot up, topped by brilliant carmine blooms whose petals are edged in yellow. The flowers are followed by a puffball looking seedhead that falls apart into dozens of seeds. Packets contain approx. 20+ seeds, which may benefit from but don't necessarily need a cold stratification. Seeds are shipped in padded envelopes to avoid damage in transit, via USPS mail (First Class or Priority). US shipping only.

    The most classic beginner's sundew out there, this is the plant so rampantly mislabeled as D. spatulata in common garden centers and even some specialized nurseries. Plants may grow to around 2 inches in diameter, with flat rosettes of distinctly spoon-shaped leaves (narrow petioles broadening into more or less teardrop-shaped to rounded lamina) that are bright green with red tentacles to solid crimson in strong light. The tall, wiry stalks bear several small, self-pollinating hot pink flowers, and plants often divide and bud off old leaves to form dense, clumping colonies. Packets contain 50+ seeds each. This species requires no species treatment to germinate, and will grow in just about any environment you can grow carnivorous plants in. 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. If a package is lost in transit, please contact as soon as possible.

    One of the most distinctive D. spatulata varieties, this northern Australian taxon develops rosettes between 1.5-2 inches in diameter of flat, narrow strap or wedge-shaped and bright lime-green leaves with red tentacles (and sometimes a nice red blush as well in the leaves themselves). It is most famous however for its flower stalks, which are short, often held just above or at the soil level, and incredibly hairy, with relatively large and metallic hot pink self-pollinating blooms stacked practically on top of each other at the end. Not typically a plant to divide often or bud off old leaves, seeds can be sown to develop an attractive carpet. Packets contain 40+ seeds each. This species requires no species treatment for germination, and grows best in warm tropical conditions with strong light. 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.
