Sabatia angularis (Rosepink) [20 Seeds]


Germination Information: Surface-sow the tiny seeds as evenly as possible over moist growing mix in a pot in fall to midwinter, and set it outdoors for germination in spring. Or, you can try starting the seeds in warm conditions (indoors in late winter to mid spring or outdoors from mid spring to mid summer). This past spring, I sowed indoors under lights on March 12 and the seeds germinated on March 23. Note that the seedlings are VERY slow-growing. The rosettes stay tiny (literally thumbnail-sized) for months and look like they aren’t doing anything, but they are busy forming roots.

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

Rosepink (Sabatia angularis), also known as rose gentian, produces only a rosette of green leaves the first year. In the second spring, stems rise to 1 to 2 feet tall (possibly 3 feet in some sites), topped with five-petaled, rosy pink blooms mostly in early through midsummer. Rosepink is native to many parts of eastern North America. Full sun to light shade; average to moist soil. Biennial; Zones 6 to 9.

2022-collected seeds sold out. I hope to collect again in July 2023. At least 20 seeds.
