Plantago major ‘Variegata’ (Variegated Plantain) [20 Seeds]
Germination Information: I recommend these very small seeds for experienced seed-sowers only, because they may require some patience and careful handling. The easiest approach is to surface-sow (do not cover) the seeds in fall to late winter, setting them outdoors in a spot protected from mice so they can get a chilling period and then germinate when conditions are right in spring.
If you sow after February, give the pot an artificial chilling period of about a month.
It is possible that these seeds could germinate if you sow them in warm, moist, bright conditions, though perhaps at a less than optimal percentage. If you try that approach and no seedlings appear within 3 to 4 weeks, then try the artificial-chilling approach above before moving them back to warmth and light.
Note that this information will not appear on the seed packet you receive.
Please red the description as well before ordering.
If you have a garden, you have weeds. And if you have weeds, you may as well have cool ones! A small but showy version of broad-leaved plantain (Plantago major), variegated plantain generally reaches about 6 inches tall, with rosettes of broad green leaves irregularly streaked with white. Slender green bloom spikes emerge from the center of the clump in summer and fall; clip them off if you don’t like them or let them stay if you want the plant to self-sow. Full sun to partial shade. Zones 3 to 9.
Collected in August 2022. At least 20 seeds.
Please read the germination information as well before ordering.
