more plants, please!

An order with Select Seeds. I've been looking for 'Will's Wonderful' for a few years at least, and 'Hillside Sheffield Pink' looks as if it will be happy near 'Mary Stoker,' if, indeed, 'Mary' made it through the winter.

Seeds, seeds. Nothing too difficult here, but all old varieties (or old-looking), which is satisfying for an old guy in an old house.

  • Amaranth caudatus 'Coral Fountain'
  • Scabiosa atropurpurea 'Black Knight' (ca. 1760)
  • Mirabilis longiflora 'Fairy Trumpets' (ca. 1806)
  • Cosmos sulphureus 'Cosmic Red'
  • Tagetes tenuifolia 'Signet Lemon Gem' (1798)
  • Zinnia tenuiflora 'Red Spider' (ca. 1801)
  • Rhodochiton atrosanguineum (purple bell vine) (1833)
  • Chrysanthemum rubellum 'Will's Wonderful'
  • Chrysanthemum rubellum 'Hillside Sheffield Pink'
  • Geranium 'Fair Ellen'
