Nicandra physalodes ‘Splash of Cream’ (Shoo-Fly Plant) [20 Seeds]


Germination Information: Sow the seeds about 1/8″ deep. Start them indoors in early to mid spring and set them in a warm, bright place to germinate; transplant outdoors after all danger of frost has passed. Or, plant the seeds outdoors, right where you want them to grow, around your last frost date. Like the species, ‘Splash of Cream’ can self-sow.

Shoo-fly plant (Nicandra physalodes), also known as apple of Peru, is an out-of-the-ordinary annual in its own right, with an upright stem that branches as it grows, eventually reaching 3 to 4 feet tall. Small, bell-shaped lavender-blue flowers begin opening in midsummer and usually continue into fall. Each flower lasts only one day. The blooms are followed by rounded green seedpods that turn brown as they dry and add interest in autumn if you leave them on the plant. (Be aware that this species can self-sow, to the point of being considered invasive in some areas.)

This strain, known as ‘Splash of Cream’, is even more unusual. It offers the bonus of variegated foliage: cream-colored spots and splashes against the green background. Full sun. Annual.

Collected starting in early July to late August 2023. At least 20 seeds. Shipping to US addresses only.

Again, cannot ship to OH.
