Germination Information: Sow indoors in mid to late spring. Scatter these tiny seeds as evenly as you can over moist growing medium and gently press them into the surface, then set the pot in a warm, bright, humid place. Move the seedlings outdoors once all danger of frost has passed. Once you get amethyst flower blooming in your garden, it may self-sow for future years.

Amethyst flower (Browallia americana), also known as bush violet or Jamaican forget-me-not, is an uncommon but easy annual with white-eyed, medium to dark blue to purple-blue flowers that are small but plentiful. The blooms appear from early or midsummer until frost on branching plants that reach 12 to 18 inches tall. It makes an excellent addition to mixed borders and to container plantings. It can grow in full sun but can also do well in some shade. Amethyst flower is technically a tender perennial but is mostly grown as an annual.

Collected from early July to late September 2023. At least 25 seeds. Shipping to US addresses only.

    Thanks so much for the feedback, Helen. I have sent you a refund for the seeds, since you weren’t completely satisfied. It would be really helpful to know why you were disappointed. Did they not germinate well, or did the plants not perform well in your climate, or was there some other reason? [Edit: I’m glad we were able to connect and determine that the seeds germinated fine, but that you had trouble finding the right spot for them in your garden. Up here in PA, I can grow them in full sun or half-day sun; in your southern climate, perhaps afternoon shade would work best.

    Super high germination! So excited to grow these.
