Claytonia virginica (Spring Beauty) [15 Seeds]


Germination Information: I recommend these seeds only for gardeners who have experience with challenging perennial seeds, because germination can be very slow and irregular, and they require patience. Apparently they need a warm-moist period, then a cold-moist period, to germinate. Sow them outdoors, about 1/8″ deep, as soon as you receive them, in a pot or in a holding bed. They should germinate the next spring but may take an additional year. Expect them to take several years to reach flowering size. After that, they are likely to self-sow and can form nice patches over time.

Note that this information will not appear on the seed packet you receive.

Spring beauty (Claytonia virginica) is a spring-blooming woodland wildflower with slender green leaves and clusters of dainty white flowers striped with pink inside. This charming US native typically reaches 6 to 8 inches tall in bloom. The clumps go dormant by early summer. Spring beauty generally prefers partial shade but can grow in sites that are sunny where spring temperatures aren’t too warm. This species is reportedly hardy in USDA Zones 3 or 4 to 9. These seeds are from plants growing wild here at Hayefield, in Bucks County, PA.

Collected in mid to late May 2023. At least 15 seeds per packet. PA ecotype. Shipping to US addresses only.
