Coreopsis mutica


Here I am offering Seeds from Coreopsis mutica. This shrub has strikingly beautiful yellow blossoms and is native to Central Mexico. Other similar varieties are present in El Salvador and Honduras. This seed is almost impossible to find. This is a larval host plant for the Agonopterix atrodorsella moth, and the Aarons Skipper butterfly. It is also a nectar source for the Southern Dogface, Gorgone Checkerspot, Queen, Common Buckeye, Monarch, Eastern Tailed-Blue, and Dainty Sulphur butterflies, and the Red-waisted Florella Moth. As an added bonus this plant is deer resistant. There is one growing in San Francisco which is Zone 9 so I will guess USDA Hardiness Zones 9 to 11

Cornus florida urbiniana | Magic Dogwood | Mexican flowering dog wood


Here I am offering Seeds from Cornus florida urbiniana, also known as Mexican flowering dogwood, and Magic Dogwood. This breath taking tree can grow up to 30 feet high and likes to live in the sun or partial shade. This is a subspecies of our more common flowering dogwood, but this one comes from eastern Mexico. Each white petal like bract is creased and they are all fused at the end of the bracts. The flower never fully opens creating a magnificent blossom which resembles a Chinese lantern. Anyone who has seen one of these in bloom never forgets it. This subspecies holds onto its leaves longer than our common dogwood so they add more color later into the season. It is also resistant to many leaf diseases that the other dogwoods a susceptible to. This tree will give you one of the most wonderful floral displays anywhere. USDA Hardiness Zones 7 to 9
