Makes a great gift! Add some color to your shaded spots! Bright blooms sustain pollinators from April through October in this collection. Starting woodland perennials from seed can be complex and lengthy. We have chosen shade-tolerant natives with straight-forward pre-treatment needs that are also tough once established.

A Seed Packet Collection is packaged in a stylish 6.75” x 4.5,” resealable paper envelope with illustrated depictions of the 6 species inside; beautiful enough to frame!

The Understory Collection includes 6 species, 1 seed packet of each:

Columbine (Aquilegia canadensis) - 250 seeds
Wild Geranium (Geranium maculatum) - 250 seeds
Hairy Beardtongue (Penstemon hirsutus) - 1,000 seeds
Jacob's Ladder (Polemonium reptans) - 100 seeds
Zig Zag Goldenrod (Solidago flexicaulis) - 100 seeds
Yellow Pimpernel (Taenidia integerrima) - 90 seeds

For a naturalized look, combine all seed packets to cover approximately 15-20 sq. ft.

Surface sow outdoors on a weed-free site late fall. Mow throughout the first growing season. Expect first blooms in year 2. Alternatively, sow seed in rows in a garden setting late fall. In spring, thin seedlings and weed as expected with vegetable gardening. Transplant to permanent locations that fall or the following spring.
