Iberodes linifolia (Venus’ Navelwort) [20 Seeds]


Germination Information: I find it best to direct-sow these seeds, about 1/8″ deep, in mid spring. Keep the site evenly moist until seedlings appear; it may take several weeks, depending on the temperature. If you really want to get an early start, you could try putting several seeds each in several pots, starting them indoors in early spring; then keep the seedlings in their little groups when you transplant them. Once you get the plants to flower and let them grow to seed, they’re likely to self-sow for following years, germinating in fall or the following spring.

This sweet little annual may not stop traffic, but if you have a spot you’d like to dress up with something special (and definitely different), consider giving Venus’ navelwort (Iberodes linifolia, formerly Omphalodes linifolia) a try. The slender stems, which generally reach 12 to 18 inches tall, carry narrow, gray-green leaves and small, five-petaled, white flowers mostly in late spring to early summer (possibly continuing through summer if it isn’t too hot). Overall, it looks much like a pure white forget-me-not (Myosotis). The “navel” part of the common name comes from the indented seeds. Annual. Full sun to light shade; average to dryish soil.

Collected in early to mid July 2023. At least 20 seeds. Shipping to US addresses only.
