america sweet peaLathyrus odoratus (SWEET PEA) ‘America’ LathAmer
From 1896, this heirloom is still popular. The very fragrant blooms are red and white striped. To see a close up pic Click Here. Sweet peas are a cool season annual and I sow them in early spring directly in the garden. In mild climates they can be grown over the winter. They are short climbers that grow well up through plants or fencing. Cut flowers brought in can perfume a whole room. This trait was unfortunately lost with many newer cultivars when they were bred for bigger flowers or more heat resistant plants. 30 seeds for $1.50.

spencermixLathyrus odoratus (SWEET PEA) ‘Striped Spencer Mix LathSSM
A color mix of striped and flecked flowers like the ‘Senator’ flower pictured above. Spencer varieties were first developed around 1900 by a gardener for the Earl of Spencer. He noticed a larger more frill flower sport and from there a new kind of sweet pea was developed. They were not so over bred to lose their scent like later breeding did so these are still well scented. 30 seeds for $1.75.




.
.
Lavatera trimestris (Rose Mallow) LavTri
Though I think my photo of the bloom is pretty good, it still does not capture the wonderful satiny appearance of the blooms. This is an old fashion favorite that should be a modern favorite. It is definitely a plant that catches the eye. The plants grow to 3′ or more and the pink blooms are about 3″ across. It blooms from mid summer until frost. 50 seeds for $1.25.

Linanthus grandiflorus (Mountain Phlox) LGrand
I grew this cute annual, and I’m baffled as why it isn’t more well known. The plants have delicate lacy foliage and light lavender flowers. I found them easy to tuck in here and there in a sunny border. Where I planted the soil is very poor soil so the plants stayed compact to about a foot, but they can grow to 2′. I’m looking for more info and now I see they are fragrant! I never thought to smell them. N. American native. 100+ seeds for $1.00.

.

Madia elegans (Elegant Tarweed) MadiaE
The bright yellow daisy type flowers with spots of red ringing their center disks of are reminiscent of coreopsis. Plus it has thin lance shaped leaves. It is also a Native American plant growing wild in the west. The nickname comes from the stickiness of the plant. It is also scented. Some people like the smell some do not,but scent is good if you want deer resistant plants. The plants grow to about 3′ though I’ve heard of them being larger, maybe in good garden soil. To see a very good page about Madia elegans with pics, Click Here. As with many native plants, it probably is best in poorer soil. Full Sun. 50 for $1.50.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAMalcolmia maritima (VIRGINIA STOCK) MalMar
This is a sweetly scented flower. The blooms vary in shades of purple, pink, and white. To see pics on Dave’s Garden, Click Here. They have a phlox type look to them, but if you notice, they have four petals which gives their lineage away as they belong to the brassica (cabbage) family. The plants are small only growing 6-12″ tall. Sow directly outside in early spring, and you will have a bed full of fragrant blooms in a very short time. These self sow, but I consider that an excellent problem. They are easy though to remove if they do show up in unwanted places. In the photo, they are being grown in part shade which is making them spill out of the pot. They will be more upright in full sun. 100++ seeds for $1.25.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAMarigold ‘Durango Bee‘ (Tagetes patula) MariDB
I grew this one in a few of my pots this year (2015,) and I was extremely happy with it.  The plants are compact growing no more than a foot tall. Mine were a tad shorter being in pots, and the flowers are fairly large for the size of the plant.  The whole pot photo is from mid. Oct. of untouched plants (not deadheaded.)

marigoldharlequinMarigold ‘Harlequin’ (Tagetes patula) MariHar
This red and yellow striped heirloom is much prettier than many of its modern counterparts. The plants grow 2-3′ tall and bloom all summer until frost.

.
.
Marigold ‘Kilimanjaro (Tagetes erecta nana) MariKil
By customer request~ The blooms of this creamy WHITE marigold is fully double and  2-3″ wide. You would think with a name like Kilimanjaro the plants would be really tall, but they are not; they are about 18″ tall. The name must be because of the breeder’s happiness of developing a white flower. 25 seeds for $1.75.




.
.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAMarigold ‘Lemon Gem’ (Tagetes signata/Tagetes Tenuifolia) MariLGm
Since the variety ‘Tangerine Gem’ has been so popular, I decided to carry this one too.

.
Marigold ‘Red Marietta’ (Tagetes patula) MariRMar
This is another cool marigold cultivar. This one is a bit more modern from 1985. It is an improved version of ‘Naughty Marietta’. Sometimes “improved” versions are not that great. They are often marketing tools to sell a new product, but once in awhile they really are terrific as is the case with Red Marietta. The petals are a strong red with a ring of gold around them.

Matthiola longipetala (Evening/Night Scented Stock) aka M. Bicornis MatLong
This plant is not much to look, not ugly, but fairly plain. It has long grass like leaves and light purple four petaled flowers that can be droopy during the day. It is how the flowers release their fragrance once the sun sets that makes them a star in the garden. So plant in beds near where you enjoy the evenings outside.

Mirabilis jalapa ‘Marbles Red and White’ (Four O’Clock) Z7/8 MirMRW
I love four o’clocks. They grow so well in pots. They attract hummingbirds, and they smell good. This particular variety has variegated blooms of pink and white as you can see by the photo from the plant breeder. Why it is called Red and White I don’t know, maybe something got lost in translation. Regardless, the flowers are unique and pretty.
For some, especially those down south, I’ve heard that  Four O’Clocks can pop up everywhere so vigilance is need to remove unwanted seedlings when they are small.
For those of you in zone 7 and colder, in case you didn’t know, once you have a four o’clock you have grown from seed, it will develop tubers and can be stored over the winter in a cool spot like a basement. I put mine in buckets with some peat moss, and forget about them until the weather turns nice in the spring. Then I bring them out of the basement and plant in pots, water, and in a little while the leaves are coming up. By mid summer you’ve got beautiful blooms on a plant much bigger than the year before. Then once frost comes, back into the basement they go. 25 seeds for $1.50.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAMirabilis jalapa ‘Salmon Sunset’  (Four O’ClockZ7/8  MirSaS

25 seeds for $1.50.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAMirabilis longiflora (Wild/Sweet Four O’clock) Z8 MirLong
I love the look of the blooms of this four o’clock. The flowers with their long necks and magenta anthers that protrude all bent out ending with the orange “pom poms” are so reminiscent of Dr. Seuss. The flowers are fragrant, reminiscent of lily, and though a night bloomer, they open early enough to enjoy them with a few hours of daylight left. I like them out on the back patio where evenings are often spent. They are a hummingbird moth attractor. Southwest US native. Full sun. If you are in a colder zone, you can dig the tubers that form(that’s why I like to grow them in pots. It is much easier to retrieve the tubers.) and store them over winter in a cool spot in your home. The following year your plants will be bigger and full of blooms sooner.
LIMIT ONE per customer. 10 seeds for $1.50.
Sorry now out of stock until Fall 2017 harvest.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERANicandra physalodes (Shoo Fly) NicPhy
Shoo Fly is an old cottage garden favorite. I don’t know whether it really repels flies or not. The plants grow to about 4′ tall and the 1 1/2″ blooms are violet blue with a white eye. The seed pods that develop are covered in a papery husk and look like hanging lanterns. This plant often comes with warnings about toxicity being in the nightshade family, but it is actually not much of a danger. I liken it to the idea of eating tomato or garden huckleberry(both also in the nightshade family) leaves. You would have to ingest a good amount and no one is going to do that, not even my dogs touch them. Shoo Fly is a self sower so remove most of the lanterns to control the amount of return to your garden. 100+ seeds for $1.00.

.
.
Nicotiana sylvestris (Flowering Tobacco) NicSyl
This stately annual is an old time favorite. From a large basal rosette of foliage this annual will eventually reach 5′ or so high. It has fragrant white flowers. They hang downwards which is why this plant is sometimes called Shooting Stars. OK, for a few years now I had no full plant shot, well I got one. It is pretty funny. A plant decided to sprout in a hanging planter. So that’s why the photo to the left looks a bit odd, but at least you can see the plant! 100 for $1.

Nierembergia hippomanica ‘Purple Robe’ (Cup Flower) aka Nierembergia hippomanica var. caerulea Z9 NiePuR

.

Nigella damascena ‘Oxford Blue’ (Love in a Mist) NigOxB
I never understood the desire for this flower from photos I had seen and thus never grew it. A seedling appeared in a pot with a plant I had received. I let it grow since it didn’t look like a weed. It ended up being a blue nigella! Well, I then of course changed my mind. The semi-double flowers were much prettier and bluer than the photos(many older cameras seemed to show blue as violet,) and the very fine ferny foliage is a nice contrast to the foliage of other plants. for full sun they grow to about 18″. 75 seeds for $1.25.

swissgiantpansyswissgiantpansy2Pansy ‘Swiss Giant Mix’ (Viola X wittrockiana) PanSGM
I’ve loved pansies since I was a little kid. Swiss Giants have been around a long time and that is probably the variety my grandma grew. This mix is comes in all the colors you would expect, blue, yellow, red, white, etc. (The old packets show here are ones I picked up at a garden show that I went to a few years ago.) The flowers are 2-3″ on bushy 8″ or so plants. Though most people grow them for their looks, the flowers are edible too. Pansies are a cool season annual meaning that in the heat of summer they will stop blooming. They need cool temps(70 and below) to germinate so winter sowing is perfect for them. For fall bloom start the seed in June/July. They also can be started in the fall and planted out to overwinter and bloom in spring. (Pansies are technically a perennial.) 100+ seeds for $1.50.

Papaver somniferum var. giganteum (Breadseed Poppy, annual) PapSom
This is another old cottage garden favorite. The goblet shaped rose/mauve flowers bloom atop 2-3′ tall stems in late spring to early summer. Annual poppies are good place where the garden looks sparse in spring, but will fill up more as the season progresses. After bloom, let the seed pods ripen. Once this happens, the plants will start to die and the plants can be pulled. Some people sprinkle the seed pods then and have great success, but I’m not so lucky and I prefer saving the seeds for sowing later. Sun. WS and transplant while still tiny, or direct sow in late winter. 100 seed for $1.25.

Sometimes you think you have better picture of a plant and you just don’t, oh well. In this planter they were planted with a purple leaf Canna. This is an OP (Open Pollinated) version of Purple Majesty that my friend Glen has been growing for quite awhile. The leaves get very dark and for price cost compared to the F1 (10 seeds for $3.50 or even more) it is a bargain. Please note if you have dogs they will eat your plants! Once the plants get large, it is ok, but when they are small plants the dogs think they are very tasty. 25 seeds for $1.25.

Persicaria capitata (Pink Pinneads) aka Polygonum capitatum Z8(7?) PerCap

I did not dead head them (I haven’t time for that this year.) People often say you must dead head petunias to keep them in bloom, but it must be for some of the older varieties.

Petunia x hybrida ‘Ultra series, Burgundy’ PetUBur
This purpley wine red flower with deeper veins is quite stunning in person. I tried to take photos of it all season but my camera will not capture the color. The breeder’s photo to the right doesn’t either. suffice it to say it is much better in person. Petunias like this are also very attractive to hummingbirds. 25 pelleted seed for $1.50.

Petunia pendulata ‘Trailblazer Mix’ PetTMix
The most economical cascading type petunia I could find, and I know many of you want them. These types in general are very expensive by seed. Trailblazers spread to about 18″, perfect for pots and hanging baskets. Colors cover a wide range including stripes and bi-colors (it used to come in purple only, but now there are many colors,) would love to see pics of your blooming plants!
25 seeds pelleted for $2.00.

Petunia exserta PetExs
This fairly rare petunia is a hummingbird magnet. I don’t think it is for sale elsewhere. The name comes from the protruding stigmas. The photo from late June shows how quickly it starts to bloom, and it does get fuller as summer progresses. I was able to over winter a plant this past year (which is quite feat for me) so it is a tropical climate perennial. 25 seeds for $2.00.

petunia antiquePetunia superbissima ‘Fluffy Ruffles’ PetFluf
If you’ve been looking for “California Giants”, the famed Petunia of the past, this is as close as you are going to get. I was happy to find these seeds. This mix is full of big flowers that are exuberantly ruffled and veined, and many have deeply colored throats. The plants spread to about 18″ and are great in planters.
100+ seeds for $1.50.

Petunia integrifolia aka Petunia violacea (Wild Petunia) Z9 PetWild
This is the South American species that modern petunias are descendant from. The 2″ glowing purplish magenta flowers are born in abundance all season. Spreading to about 2 feet, they look sort of like a wild form of purple wave petunias, and they are way cheaper. I tried to take photos many times this season, but my camera does not photograph this color at all!  The photo is neat because of the hummingbird moth that I photographed (click to enlarge,)  but do not expect that color from the plants. It is much deeper and vibrant in person.  100++ seed for $1.00.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAPhacelia campanularia (California Bluebells) PhCamp
This short annual is a N. American native and has true blue flowers. It is best know for putting on a pretty late spring/early summer show. So planting in a sunny border that need a boost in spring before the summer show is the best spot for this cutie. Sprinkling the seed where you want it to grow in late winter works as long as mulch is not too heavy Also start indoors early, or WSing and planting out when in still the seedling stage would work great too. 100++ seeds for $1.00.

phaceliaPhacelia tanacetifolia (Fiddleneck aka  Lacy Phacelia) PhTana
This is a neat looking annual and it is also a an excellent plant for beneficial insects. The lavender blue flower clusters are in a curled fiddleneck shape hence the one nickname, and of course the other nickname is from the feathery foliage. It is an easy to grow, and I think kids would love it because of the unusual bloom clusters.  Attracts butterflies. It is native to the western US. 100+ seeds for $1.25.

    Hi Wallace,
    I have run into tomato photo theft so now I have them all watermarked. Some of the flowers are also watermarked, but they seem to not be as desirable as often as the tomatoes. Before the watermarks, most companies removed them on request, and the one that didn’t was reported by people I know. My customers and friends are good loyal people! Their site was taken down, because it against the rules of the hosting service company to steal content and make it look as if it is your own.
    I’ve not had anyone try to steal what I’ve written, and I hope they don’t. Most companies cut and paste the same info as other catalogs, and maybe I’m not big enough to get plagiarized yet. If someone did copy me, it would stick out like a sore thumb since I write the way I talk. I have a feeling though it would be very similar to when the photos were stolen. The offending company would get many complaints from people who frequent here, and the content would be removed. If they did not comply
    they would be at risk of loosing their site as the tomato photo thief did.
