(Oenothera biennis) - A beautiful and useful native biennial, all parts of Evening Primrose are edible and the young leaves and shoots are especially good in salads.

Common Milkweed
Common Milkweed
Price: $3.00

(Asclepias syriaca) Help feed hungry monarchs! Milkweed is the only food source for Monarch butterfly caterpillars, which are in decline partially due to a lack of food along their migration route. The monoculture farming that's now ubiquitous across North America often doesn't leave much room for the wild spaces where milkweed and monarchs used to make their living. Every summer we see 4-5 monarch butterflies in our milkweed patch, lets plant a monarch garden in every neighbourhood!

3'-4' perennial plants, with fragrant clusters of flowers loved by bees, followed by green seed pods (which are edible when young). Plants spread with rhizomes

50+ seeds

-Grown by Annapolis Seeds

Keep in mind, this is the native but potentially invasive Common Milkweed, so plant it in a corner it can take over without being in the way. There are also less-vigourous and "better behaved" milkweed species for flower gardens (we don't offer them currently, but search them out!).

Saint John's Chamomile
Price: $3.00

New for 2018 - Anthemis sancti-johannis - Also known as Marguerite Daisy. A vigourous perennial with loads of golden-orange flowers. Despite it’s chamomile name, this one isn’t for teas and herbal uses (you want German Chamomile for that). The flowers start early summer and last for months, feeding every butterfly in the neighbourhood. I found the young plants very easy to get established, they even flowered for me in the first year. Aromatic ferny foliage. Loves dry soil and full sun. 24” tall. 100+ seeds
