20 seeds  $4.25   

This genus includes 30-50 species primarily distributed in Asia and North America. Mostly spring blooming and, with a few exceptions, deciduous woodland plants. They have underground rhizomes; some species develop a many-stemmed clump, others a dense colony. Whorls of foliage and solitary flowers in white, yellow, green, brown, rose or purple, occasionally bicoloured. After flowering, a fleshy berry is formed. Most species are long lived ornamentals. For optimum growth give them a deep, moist soil in bright, half or fully shaded conditions. They will, however grow in less than ideal conditions.

TRIOSTEUM pinnatifidum (Moist Packed)Summer3525
40cm  Zone: 3-4
A rare herbaceous member of the Honeysuckle family almost never seen in cultivation. I quote from the Heronswood catalogue.... "this plant is beyond remarkable, and mindboggling to me that it has not yet been further grown and known. Deeply lobed, felted leaves, reminiscent of Hydrangea quercifolia, and small greenish flowers followed by large white fruit with a soft blush of rosy pink, on herbaceous stems to 18", making large, robust plants over time. Partial shade and any soil."
Germination Instructions: Seed is moist packed. Cold treatment required on receipt.
