Packera aurea (Golden Groundsel) [20 Seeds]


Germination Information: I recommend these only for gardeners experienced with challenging perennial seeds, because they can require patience and may need a chilling period. (Handling Seeds That Need Chilling)

I suggest surface-sowing the seeds as soon as you get them and setting the pot outdoors. If you get these seeds in May through July, while they are still very fresh, they might germinate the same summer. Otherwise, they may need to go through a natural or artificial moist-cold period (about 2 months, if artificial).

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 mid- to late May 2023. These seeds are from wild plants growing in my meadow in Milford Township, Bucks County, PA (so PA ecotype). At least 20 seeds. One packet per person. Shipping to US addresses only.
