Cynanchum laeve | Sand Vine | Blue Vined Milkweed | 5_Seeds


This is Cynanchum laeve, also known as Sand Vine, Honey Vine, Blue Vined Milkweed, and Honeyvine Milkweed. If the Monarchs and Queens could vote, this plant would be at the top of the list. Many people claim that the Monarchs prefer the sand vine in their yard over the Asclepias. This is a larval host plant of the Monarch and Queen butterflies, and it is just a hit with all nectar gatherers. This plant likes to live in mostly sun to partial shade and blooms from the middle of the Summer until the early Fall. This is an aggressive plant so put it somewhere you can keep it in check. It is well worth it just for all of the wildlife that flocks to it. USDA Hardiness Zones 4 to 9.

Echinacea purpurea Doubledecker | Doppelganger | 10_Seeds


Here, I am offering seeds from Echinacea purpurea Doubledecker, also known as purpurea Doppelganger. This plant likes the full sun so much that it should be planted somewhere where it will get at least 6 hours of direct sunlight per day. If you do this the plants will form strong communities. This plant was originally called purpurea Doppelganger when it was discovered in Germany by Eugene Schleipfer. This seed is a result of many years of artificial selection. There may be some single blooms in the first year, but the double blooms have a higher percentage the following years. Every now and then you can get an old single bloom. Similar seed strains exist but this one came directly from the work of Eugene Schleipfer. The leaves and petals of this plant are edible. This plant attracts the American Lady, Giant Swallowtail, Great Spangled Fritillary, Southern Cloudywing, Painted Lady, Pearl Crescent, Red Admiral, Silvery Checkerspot, Spicebush Swallowtail, Eastern Tiger Swallowtail, Variegated Fritillary, Viceroy, Fiery Skipper, Gulf Fritillary, Sachem, and Tawny-edge Skipper butterflies. USDA Hardiness Zones 3 to 9

Coreopsis mutica | 20_seeds


This is 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
