Maianthemum racemosum (Solomon’s Plume) [15 Seeds]


Germination Information: I recommend these only for patient gardeners with experience handling challenging perennial seeds with multi-cycle germination patterns. Apparently these grow best if given a cold period of 2 to 3 months, followed by a warm period of 2 to 3 months, and then another 2- to 3-month cold period. It’s up to you whether you want to give them artificial cold-warm-cold periods to try to speed up the sprouting or just sow them in an outdoor pot or nursery bed as soon as you get them; some seedlings might appear the first spring but more likely not until the second spring.

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