Salvia sclarea

100 seeds/pack

Hands down, the number one attraction to this plant is the heavenly scent emitted by the lavender/white flower spikes that can reach 5-6 feet. The scent is sweet yet has a hint of citrus. The seeds have traditionally been used in eye washes and the leaves as fixatives in potpourri. This plant is a perennial and will reseed itself in the garden as well. Recently we've been selling the cut flowers at the farmer's market and customers have been going crazy for the scent!

Lactuca sativa

200 seeds/pack | 50-60 days   |   Slow Bolting!

This heat tolerant variety really impressed us. We were eating it well into July before it began to go to seed. With succulent leaves and generous red blushes we will be sure to grow Lovelock again just to eat. Looseleaf type but will form a nice head later in the season.

Pennisetum glaucum

200 seeds/pack   |   100 days   |   Heirloom

Like a giant grass, this grain grows 7-10 feet and produces multiple seed heads on each plant. The seed heads resemble a corn cob with no husk and are covered with many small blue grains. This millet is a food staple in western Africa and seems well suited for our climate region. Pearl millet is well adapted to growing areas characterized by drought, low soil fertility, and high temperatures. It performs well in soils with high salinity or low pH. Because of its tolerance to difficult growing conditions, it can be grown in areas where other cereal crops, such as maize or wheat, would not survive.

Achillea millefolium

100 seeds/pack

Used through the millennia for everything from bleeding to sore throat and fever, yarrow is an herbal medicine chest essential. Deeply feathered leaves gave rise to the Latin species name “millefolium,” meaning “thousand-leafed.” The white flowers are borne on upright stalks in flat-topped clusters. Yarrow is a spreading perennial with a robust will to live. It is completely drought tolerant and found in many wild locations. The pernicious rhizomes spread readily in fertile soil, so beware of planting in your veggie garden! Great plant for an herbal lawn since it doesn't seem to mind the weedeater!
