    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. If a package is lost in transit, please contact as soon as possible.

    This may be one of the most impressive ornamental plants I have ever seen, let alone grown; plants can get 3 feet tall or more if grown for long periods of time, and under proper lighting develop leaves and stems that are, in fact, BLACK in color. Not the nearly-so purplish or maroon that a lot of plants may sport, this thing turns an ominous inky color when it's happy. The flowers and fruits are equally striking, blooms star-shaped and a rich, deep violet, turning into small round fruits that start out just as black as the rest of the plant before ripening to a brilliant scarlet, contrasting with the foliage. Though called ornamental, the fruits are edible, and pack a 20,000 Scoville rating heat (so if wanting to spice something without adding a lot of extra flavor, they're great to use). Packets or dried fruits 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.

    Grown for appearance but can be eaten too, as a colorful addition to salads etc., this ornamental pepper cultivar is a short, stocky plant that often doesn't get more than a foot or two tall, and once mature loads itself first with light purplish star-shaped flowers that develop into slender, curving fruits that age from white (in this variant; some may start out purple) through yellow, orange, and finally bright red. The fruits have no heat, nor much strong flavor (hence typically grown ornamental), and dry with ease. Packets (or dried fruits) 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. 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.

    Looking for an orchid to try as a first-time grower? Or for something at least a little different from the common garden center moth orchids? This is a great option to try, and even one that, unlike most orchids, can be sprouted from seeds without special conditions. All you need is some moist, airy soil of some sort (sphagnum and orchid bark works well) and time. Plants tend to produce one or two long, lance-shaped leaves that hug the soil, dying back to the tubers for a cool, dry winter period, and in summer send up stalks up to 2 feet or more tall that sport from one to over a dozen delicate white and lavender flowers that easily self-pollinate. Packets contain likely 150-200+ fine, dust-like 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.

    Price is for approximately 1-2" diameter dormant tubers; if you're familiar with the Titan arum that gets on the news whenever it blooms, this is a much easier to grow, smaller cousin. During the summer growing season the plants will develop a single leaf up to 6 feet tall and nearly as wide, looking like a mini tree with a mottled dark green and tannish petiole and branching leaflets of bright green. Keep in a rich well-drained soil and feed heavily at this time, and they'll develop tubers that can eventually be more than a foot across and up to 20 pounds (though usually smaller), and when they go dormant, can even survive outdoor winters in milder zones. Mature tubers (usually over 6" across) may start the season by producing an inflorescence anywhere from 2-6 feet tall, with the same mottled stalk as the leaf sports but topped in a vase-shaped spathe mottled on the outside and maroon inside surrounding a tall spadix of the same color. This is a flower you'll want outside when it opens; they don't earn the name "corpse flower" lightly! Tubers are shipped dry-wrapped and padded, via USPS Priority mail; I typically ship Monday-Wednesday to avoid weekend hold-overs. US shipping only. Many plants are grown in high humidity conditions and may require acclimation, unless otherwise noted. If you are expecting weather that may be detrimental to the plants if shipped, please message me upon making your order! If there are issues with the plants upon arrival, please contact me within 48 hours of receipt.

    A plant with many names depending on who you talk to; once classified under Epilobium, and some say the current name is spelled Chamaenerion. Fireweed or Fireflower is a widespread US native species, a colonizer of newly burned locations and open soils (especially if it's rich and well-drained or acidic) and prolific once established. Plants may grow as tall as 3 feet, with branching stems of lance-shaped deep red-green leaves topped by spikes of large, bright mauve-pink blooms that produce long seedpods full of tiny seeds attached to wind-dispersed fluff. A great plant for an outdoor pot, or any spot that you just can't quite get anything else to grow (so long as adequate water is given). Packets contain approximately 50+ seeds, which benefit from a month-long cold stratification. 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.

    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.

    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. 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.

    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.

    A small, delicate pipevine that is quite easy to grow; plants may mature at less than a foot long, with leaves around 2" wide with a fan-shaped array of silvery veins on deep green. Flowers may be no more than an inch or two across, with a bulbous base and curving neck  that spreads into a flared, fimbriated opening; anthers and stigma are within the base, so for pollination one must cut into the side of the bloom and differently aged blooms pollinate best. Packets contain approximately 10 seeds; no special treatment is required to germinate. 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.

    This unusual aroid is easy-growing and rapidly-multiplying, and quite a sight to behold whether in leaf or in flower. Dormant through winter (and easy to store, in a dry, cool spot), the tubers send out a single bloom structure in spring that can be nearly 2 feet long, with a bulbous base and a long mottled spathe surrounding an often longer, slender "tongue" spadix. Take care the odor, though it doesn't last long (a couple days) it can fill a room with eu de something dead! After the inflorescence dies one to several multi-bladed leaves between 1-5 feet tall are put up which last for several months, up to 3 feet across and with a petiole spotted in purple on green.   Price is for one dormant tuber, approximately 2-3" in diameter, or an equivalent of smaller offsets. This is not a plant that needs humidity and may even grow in a garden bed in warmer zones.   Tubers are shipped dry-wrapped and padded, via USPS Priority mail; I typically ship Monday-Wednesday to avoid weekend hold-overs. US shipping only. Many plants are grown in high humidity conditions and may require acclimation, unless otherwise noted. If you are expecting weather that may be detrimental to the plants if shipped, please message me upon making your order!

    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). 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.
