Heliotropium Arborescens

Heliotrope (Heliotropium Arborescens Extra Dwarf Marine) - Heliotrope seeds produce a richly colored plant with both foliage and blooms that nicely contrast each other. The blooms are not only lovely, but they also have a spectacular vanilla scent! This Heliotropium Arborescens Marine Heliotrope has a compact form with broadly oval to lance-shaped, textured leaves tinged with purple. In summer, it bears a profusion of fragrant deep violet-blue flower heads up to 6 inches across. Heliotrope is a cottage garden favorite, and through the years has been called Turnsole Plant, Cherry Pie Plant, Common Heliotrope, and Fragrant Heliotrope. Whatever name you call it, it is a delight to grow!

Heliotrope plants are a perennial in warmer climates but grown as an annual where it is not hardy. Its rich foliage and profuse blooms make it a great choice for summer bedding, containers or window boxes. A strong scent of vanilla floats through the garden, especially on summer evenings, making this tender perennial an excellent choice for containers or edgings in sunny borders. Bees and butterflies like the scent as well and visit Heliotrope flowers often!

Sow Heliotrope seeds indoors 6 - 8 weeks before the last frost. Use rich potting mix and keep the flower seeds moist until germination. When transplanting to the garden or larger containers, pinch back tops of young Heliotrope plants to encourage branching. Deadhead spent blooms throughout season to encourage flowering. Remove plants after frost.

Sinningia Speciosa

Gloxinia (Sinningia Speciosa Brocade Series) - Sow Gloxinia seeds to produce a beautiful mixture of red, blue, and white blooms. These compact Gloxinia plants blossom four to six months after sowing. They will flower for about 2 months, go dormant for about 2 months, and then begin growing again and start flowering. Gloxinias make a great house plant, giving wonderful, colorful blooms! Sinningia Speciosa is often referred to as Florist's Gloxinia or Brazilian Gloxinia.

Gloxina seeds are a bit tricky to germinate and do best indoors and under lights. Do not cover the flower seeds after sowing since they need light to germinate. Sinningia Speciosa seeds should germinate in about 3 weeks at 70 - 75F degrees. Soil should be kept uniformly moist, but do not keep it saturated. Florist's Gloxinia care includes avoiding watering the crown of the plant as this might cause the plant to rot, and use water that is at room temperature for watering. The Brazilian Gloxinia plant needs lots of light, but no direct light. Gloxinias do best in temperatures around 65 - 75F degrees, especially when they are blooming. After blooming, keep watering to a minimum and don't fertilize.

Limnanthes Douglasii

Meadowfoam (Limnanthes Douglasii) - Grow Limnanthes Douglasii seeds for this annual that is native to California. Limnanthes is commonly called Poached Egg Plant or Meadowfoam, and it is not only visually very striking and attractive, but it also has a very nice aroma as well. Limnanthes Poached Egg Plant is not fussy about soil, and it will easily and quickly spread, creating a low-growing, shiny, carpet. Each meadowfoam plant can spread up to 30 inches! Poached Egg Limnanthes is a very long blooming annual with a mass of charming, 1 inch clear white and lemony yellow 2-toned blooms on 8 inch stems. It easily sows its own flower seeds for next year's display. Meadowfoam plants are great as a ground cover plant, and they will grow well in pots too.

Sow Limnanthes Douglasii seeds directly outdoors in a prepared seedbed in spring after danger of frost has passed. Meadowfoam seed should be pressed into the soil and very lightly covered with soil. When large enough to handle, thin the Poached Egg Plant seedlings.

Polygonum Capitatum

Pinkhead Smartweed (Polygonum Capitatum Punching Balls) - Polygonum Capitatum seeds can be grown to form a low-growing, spreading ground cover. A synonymous botanical name is Persicaria Capitata, and it has many common names: Pinkhead Smartweed, Pink Knotweed, Pink Clover, and Pink Fleece Flower. Pink Knotweed uses include containers, baskets, edging the front of the border or as ground cover plants. It looks especially lovely in raised beds or containers where it can spill over the edges. Pinkhead Smartweed is praised for its burgundy tinted foliage and small coral-pink round flower heads. It is a tough, easy-to-grow ground cover for sun or shade with a long bloom season.

Start Polygonum Capitatum seeds indoors in late winter for areas with a short growing season. Use quality seed starting soil and small pots. Press the ground cover seeds into the moistened soil and lightly cover. Maintain moisture until germination occurs. After danger of frost has passed, transplant the Pink Knotweeds seedlings outdoors after hardening the ground cover plants for 10 days or more. For areas with a long growing season, start the Knotweed ground cover seeds directly outdoors after danger of frost has passed. Prepare a weed-free seedbed and lightly cover the seeds with soil after broadcasting.

Phaseolus Coccineus

Scarlet Runner Bean Mix (Phaseolus Coccineus Mix) - Every gardener should try growing Scarlet Runner Beans seeds. This unique plant is a decorative runner beans mix with colorful beans, three flower colors and edible young pods. Here are some very interesting facts about Phaseolus Coccineus Scarlet Runner:

  • They are nutritious, good and healthy to eat
  • Have a more distinctive flavor than French beans
  • You can eat the fresh pods after cooking, or harvest seeds from older pods to cook as haricot beans
  • They are often prolific croppers - with a freezer you can grow enough to last many months
  • They easily grow in odd spaces amongst flowers, etc...
  • Scarlet Runner Beans also have attractive flowers
  • Flat runner beans are not stocked fresh in small fruit and vegetable shops, or in tins or frozen packs
  • Like other plants of the pea family this crop leaves your soil enriched in nitrogen

Scarlet Runner Beans have brilliant red flowers that last throughout the summer. This wonderful mix has brown, purple, and red flamed beans as well as white. Flowers are scarlet, white, and bi-color red and white. The blossoms are less than an inch across and grow in clusters. The edible beans grow up to a foot long and are especially good when picked young. Pick them often to promote continued flowering. The Scarlet Runner Bean vine will quickly and brilliantly cover fences, trellises and other garden structures and will climb 10 - 12 feet.

Sow Scarlet Runner Beans seeds outdoors after all danger of frost has passed. Plant Phaseolus Coccineus seed 1 inch deep and 3 inches apart. Germination takes 7 - 14 days. Keep the soil moderately moist during germination. Thin 4 - 6 inches apart when plants are 2 - 3 inches tall.

Runner beans are a favorite with hummingbirds and butterflies. Plant some on a back fence or a trellis and enjoy the flowers and the hummingbirds year after year! Plants need full sun and plenty of water. Growing Scarlet Runner Beans is fun and rewarding!

Brassica Oleracea

Ornamental Cabbage (Brassica Oleracea) - Start Ornamental Cabbage seeds to create a colorful bed that is cold tolerant and easy-to-maintain. Ornamental Cabbage uses include edging the flower border or planting in containers for fall and winter interest. These Ornamental Brassica plants contain all pink, all white, or all purple centers with green outer leaves. Nothing looks more elegant or stands out more beautifully in the fall than Ornamental Brassicas.

Just start Ornamental Brassica seeds indoors, covering the flower seeds very lightly. Ornamental Cabbage seeds germinate quickly and the young plants can be transplanted. Ornamental Cabbage plants will start out green, and with time, they will begin to develop color. About 12 weeks after sowing the Ornamental Cabbage seeds, there will be a perfectly round, colorful rosette 10 inches high and 12 inches wide. These cabbages gain color quickly and are late to bolt.
