Packera aurea (Golden Groundsel) [20 Seeds]


Germination Information: I recommend these seeds for experienced seed-starters only, because they can require patience. I suggest surface-sowing them as soon as you get them and setting the pot outdoors; if you get these seeds soon (in June, while they are still very fresh), they apparently might germinate this summer; otherwise, look for them to sprout next spring or summer.

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

Golden groundsel (Packera aurea, formerly Senecio aureus) is a charming wildflower with deep green basal leaves and slender, upright stems usually around 1 foot tall. They’re topped through late spring with button-like purple buds that open into small, bright yellow, daisy-form flowers. Easy and adaptable to a wide range of growing conditions, it spreads by short rhizomes, making an excellent evergreen groundcover under shrubs and trees and in low-maintenance areas. Golden groundsel is a cute cut flower for spring arrangements too! Native to much of eastern North America, this little beauty can grow in sun or shade (even dry shade). Perennial; Zones 3 to 9.

Collected in late May 2022 from wild plants growing in my meadow in Milford Township, Bucks County, PA (so PA ecotype). At least 20 seeds.
