Let us delight you with our brand-new introduction of cardinal flower!
Like the rare bird, ’White Cardinal’ is a unique form with brilliant
pure white flowers accented by a delightful touch of reddish-pink flower
tubes. Native to much of North America, the
bright red common form includes names like Indian Pink, asthma weed and
Indian Tobacco to reflect the many ways cardinal flower was used by
This treasure of a perennial grows like its red brother (winner of an
Award of Garden Merit from the Royal Horticultural Society) preferring
moist to wet soil. Its large brilliant flowers with their deeply hidden
nectaries are an excellent food source for hummingbirds
We are happy to offer seeds of this unusual color variant. We have taken
care of the natural germination inhibition this species uses in its
reproductive strategy with our GOLD NUGGET SEED® process, allowing quick

With the introduction of our popular "Ornamental One" Chive Series in
2020, gardeners added beauty to their herb gardens and mixed containers
in sturdy clumps from 3 single color seed strains not available before
from seed. First year flowering and deliciously
edible, this highly ornamental series now includes the ’Mixed One’… a
nice assortment of pink, purple and white flowering plants with
consistent medium sized foliage.
Our customers figured this out and began asking for a mix of the colors
and we happily obliged. It was not listed on our website as a
possibility until now as so often these days the preference is for
colors separately sorted.
At 30 cm (12 in) tall in flower and hardy in zones 3-9, the humble chive
is a versatile addition to any garden. These lovely chives are a candy
store for bees, butterflies and other insects. Whether you love the
’Pink One’ or are looking for a drought tolerant
groundcover in your white garden (the ’White One’) or want a violet
flash of colour with the ’Purple One’, you have an additional choice.
Now you can have them all united in one seed mix. Just ask for the
Heavenly, perfectly describes the clear blue color of Jelitto Perennial
seeds newly bred seed strain of Lathyrus vernus. Blooming in early
spring… just in time to welcome gardeners back to the garden… ’Heavenly
Blues’ is a long-lived member of the Papilionaceae
family of leguminous plants whose flowers have butterfly shaped
corollas and attract masses of butterflies and bees, providing a
valuable source of nectar early in the year. Lathyrus ’Heavenly Blues’
grows quickly to form nice clumps in an open woodland garden
or rockery and thrives best in cooler summer climates. Heavenly
azure-blue flowers present a unique color rarely found among this hardy sweet pea group which normally flowers in
red-violet shades. Lathyrus vernus grows best in well-drained woodland
soils and valuably complements other early blooming perennials like
Trillium, Helleborus, Doronicum and Dicentra,
with its gently textured foliage.
We are very happy to offer this heavenly blue seed strain of perennial
sweet pea Lathyrus vernus ’Heavenly Blues’ as a companion to the softly
pink strain ’Rosenelfe’. Or if you’d like to sample the candy store, the
mixed colour strain ’Rainbow’ is for you.
In 2010 we introduced the Spotlight Series – vigorous sturdy
single-flowering Alceas in 4 wonderful colors: ’Mars Magic’ red, the
black-purple ’Blacknight’, ’Sunshine’ yellow, and the white ’Polarstar’.
In 2014 pink ’Radiant Rose’ was added to the series which
has become an important component in today’s modern gardens.
Breeding the series started in 1992 and 16 years ago we began our work
to bring a blue-purple form to market. The earliest kernels of ’Purple
Rain’ originated in a private garden in Romania. This form had deeply
divided leaves, not matching the ideal form for
our upcoming Spotlight Series, but was truly perennial.
The best breeders have patience, lots of patience. Take one look at our
new addition, ’Purple Rain’, and you will see a work of art that is long
’Purple Rain’ has beautiful wide green foliage on sturdy upright stems
and deep blue violet single saucers. Plants grow to around 180 cm (70
inches) the same height as the rest of the seed raised Spotlight Series,
and if sown early in the year, are first year
Enjoy the vivid blue purple flowers May through October in a sunny area
of the garden. Available as JET® pure seed for easy sowing.
