Claytonia virginica (Spring Beauty) [20 Seeds]

$4.75

Germination Information: I recommend these seeds only for gardeners with experience handling multi-cycle germinators, because they have an extended germination period and require a good bit of patience. The recommended protocol is to sow them as soon as you get them and leave the pot outdoors, keeping it evenly moist and protected from mice and slugs. Or, sow them directly in a nursery bed. Seedlings should appear next spring but may take an additional year to appear. If you want to try to speed up germination, treat the seeds (sown in moist growing medium or on moist paper towel in a plastic bag) to alternating 3-month periods of 70°F and 40°F temperatures until they begin to sprout. 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.

Description

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 U.S. native typically reaches 6 to 8 inches tall in bloom. The clumps go dormant by early summer. This species is reportedly hardy in USDA Zones 3 or 4 to 9. Once you get it established in your garden, it is likely to self-sow.

As of May 7, 2021, I have started collecting fresh seeds from plants in my meadow in Bucks County, PA. Each packet will contain at least 20 seeds. It is challenging to collect the seeds, so I will likely have just a few packets available.
