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.
Harvested in June and July 2022. At least 20 seeds.
