2016  Seed Selections

Color Strains and Mixes

There are daily surprises and delights when the blooms begin. This listing is based on last year’s harvest but we have new plants coming into bloom every year.  If you have a special request  please let us know. 

MINIMUM  OF 20 SEEDS PER SELECTION

 

 

1

BALLARD MIX – Open pollinated seeds from a mixed planting grown from seed from Gisela Schmieman, who took over the  work of renown hybridizer Helen Ballard.  These plants represent the entire spectrum of color, from bright green to

black and include picotees and anemone flowered blooms.  The doubles are a bee’s flight away so anything is possible.             MINIMUM 20 SEEDS
