  1. 'Echinacea (Purple Coneflower)'

    'Echinacea (Purple Coneflower)'

    (Echinacea purpurea) Native to the North American plains, Echinacea has become a household name and the ambassador of herbal medicine for its use in stimulating the immune system. Purpurea is the easiest of the Echinacea family to grow, requiring no prior cold treatment for germination. A visually stunning perennial reaching a height of  3’, each plant produces several flower stalks topped with the characteristic cone shaped centers and drooping purple petals. Third year roots are most often used for medicinal purposes. Unless started very early, blooms second year and thereafter. Slugs LOVE the fresh green growth so keep an eye on these!

  4. 'Tulsi' (Sacred Basil, Holy Basil)

    'Tulsi' (Sacred Basil, Holy Basil)

    (Ocimum sanctum aka O. tenuiflorum) Considered India’s “Queen of Herbs”  and cultivated for over 5,000 years for both religious and medicinal purposes. Used in Aryuvedic medicine for its classification as an adaptogenic herb (tonic herb) that supports ones natural immune system while simultaneously relieving stress and bringing balance.  An important herb in the Hindu religion, Tulsi is considered a goddess in plant form and is often found growing in a prominent location in the gardens or homes in India. Interestingly as Tulsi traveled westward into Europe and found its way into the Christian religions it became known as the “King of Herbs” and eventually sacred or holy basil hence its Latin name. Medicinal use of Tulsi leaves are far reaching and include, fever, cough, stress, headaches, skin disorders… The smell is pungent, spicy, and minty with a slight hint of sweet basil and cloves. Tulsi was a favorite forage plant for bees this year and we absolutely loved watching it grow and flower profusely. Like any herb you’d like to see grow bigger and bushier, pinch off flower buds as they appear. A lovely and fragrant addition to any flower bouquet as well!

  5. Calendula, 'Zeolights'

    Calendula, 'Zeolights'

    (C. officinalis) We love our cheery mix of yellow, orange and pale petal calendula varieties (above) but if we had to pick our favorite single strain this would be it. Selected out of the “flashback” line of calendulas that have maroon on the undersides of the petals, Zeolights has huge fully doubled salmon/apricot colored blooms. The pointed petals have a unique layered quality giving them a finely cut mandala like appearance. Very elegant and slightly later blooming than most of the mix.

  6. Celosia 'Ruby Parfait'

    Celosia 'Ruby Parfait'

    (Celosia argentea spicata) Goodness gracious how I love names. Now we all know what a parfait is, or do we…?! I for instance was unaware until this very moment that a parfait in the UK can also refer to a meat paste made from duck or chicken livers and flavored with liqueurs. Mmmmmmmm. This is most decidedly not what the creator of this name was going for. Moving on… These are lovely (once you leave the worrisome name behind) flowers and quite easy to grow although we beseech you to sow these ever so tiny seeds in some sort of vessel you can lovingly keep track of as they work their magic underground. 2-3” arrow shaped spikes of deep pink flowers poke up in a profuse mass atop the 2-3’ plants. Wonderful for cutting with a long vase life of or if you’d rather leave them be, lovely in a garden and perfect in a flower pot as their spread is but 18” or so. Attractive to butterflies but not so much to deer who much rather prefer your carefully tended, crisp and delicious lettuce buffet. Also attractive to and nutritious for people! A member of the Amaranth family, Celosia argentea is grown as a leaf vegetable and cereal crop in West and Central Africa, and Southeast Asia. In southern Nigeria, it is the most important leaf vegetable and is known as sokoyokoto (Lagos spinach).  So sow away. And by all means, rename.

    These last few years the birds have Loved our cosmos seed but this year we caught them before total seed loss, netted the patch, and voila, seed!

    Eryngium, 'Blue Glitter'

    Eryngium, 'Blue Glitter'

    (Eryngium planum) Often known by their common name, sea holly, Eryngiums are dazzling perennials with a “Don’t-mess-with-me” vibe. Basal rosettes of leathery, deep green leaves stretch skyward with branching stems of prickly, thistle-like foliage and blooms. As they mature, both the flowers and stems that support them turn a fantastic silvery cobalt blue, each bloom surrounded by a decorative collar of long slender spikey sepals. Beloved for its distinct form in both fresh and dried arrangements, “Blue Glitter” was bred for the cut flower trade. Indifferent to poor soils and infrequent watering, it only asks of you a sunny spot and well draining ground. Now, we spend perhaps an unusual amount of time in the summer sitting and observing pollinators on the farm, and I must say, our humble patch of Eryngium attracted a greater density and diversity of pollinators than anything else we grew this year. It was a truly magnificent humming microcosmos of activity.
    Perennial, blooms first year if started early. UO

    Jacobs Ladder, 'Blue Pearl'

    Jacobs Ladder, 'Blue Pearl'

    (Polemonium caeruleum) Jacob’s ladder earns its common name from the tidy and regular 90 degree placements of the many narrow leaflets on the compound leaves, giving the appearance of a structure very conducive for climbing if one were the proper height. Also known as Greek valerian it starts as a rosette of lush ferny foliage eventually stretching to about 30” topped with clusters of lovely sky-blue 1” blooms featuring bright yellow contrasting anthers. Perennial, it thrives in dappled sunlight/part shade and moist well draining ground. At our farm its is one of the first to bloom, providing an early venue of enthusiasm for the grateful neighborhood pollinators.
