Hummingbirds love this plant . I have used the leaves as an oregano substitute when finding it growing wild in the rocky mountains. It makes a lovely wild flower planting and attracts honeybees as well as many pollinators Drought tolerant ..grows in sun and light shade.

All of our seed offerings were grown here. I have been a seed savers for 40 years. Our seeds are packaged in original art packets, hand folded with 100% recycled paper. Instructions for growing are not on the packs but are on the listing under the seed template. Books on gardening as well as many catalogs carry general information on growing seeds. I am available by e-mail or phone to answer any growing questions as well. You won't find that service from many sources of seeds. The shipping on our orders also includes the processing and handling charges which is also less or equal to most seed companies. I hand pack each order and drive from the farm to the post office to ship your order.I only ship in the USA.
