The genus Limnanthes includes many gorgeous annual wildflowers that are among the most vigorous reseeders. We are offering three species in this Special Collection. Easy to grow, they return reliably with sufficient rain or irrigation. In masses, they are breathtaking, as well as important for bees and other pollinators. The oil made from white meadowfoam is winning raves as an ingredient in cosmetics.
This collection includes one packet of each:
White meadowfoam (Limnanthes alba )
Douglas meadowfoam (Limnanthes douglasii )
Pt. Reyes meadowfoam (Limnanthes douglasii var sulphurea)
A description of the fascinating ecology of meadowfoam and of its uses in gardens, written by our proprietor Judith Lowry, is also included.
