A VERY rare find! White-flowered Jewelweed!

A native wildflower in much of North America, Jewelweed is a fun wildflower because once the seed pods ripen, if touched, they 'pop' and shoot their seeds long distances! Extra fun for kids, and fun trying to harvest them!☺ These seeds are for the exotic-looking white flowers, spotted, and a favorite of hummingbirds. Grow these plants in a mainly shaded area. They are quite tolerant of dry soil, and even acidic soils under evergreen trees.

When we first became aware of Jewelweed we thought these plants were perennials because our plants are in the same grouping every year, and grow to their full height quite quickly. They are in fact, annuals, that are extremely reliable, and require absolutely no maintenance to get them to appear each year! We grow them in zone 4 (really cold Canadian winters) though they have the largest hardiness range of any plants that we are aware of from zone 2 (really, really, really cold) to zone 11 (tropical).

Hardiness zones: 2-11, virtually all of North America and beyond!

Location: Shade or part shade

Height: 3-4'

Seeds per pack: 10 (previously 5)

Germination: Start these seeds right away to preserve viability, no matter the time of year. If you receive these seeds summer or fall, they can be planted directly outdoors and they will grow naturally in the spring. Otherwise if it is winter or spring, start these seeds indoors right away. Obtain a planting container that has holes in the bottom for excess water to drain. Use regular soil, nothing amended with fertilizers or manure of any kind. A seed start mix can also be used if mixed with 1/3 sand. Place the seeds just below the surface of the soil and water lightly. Place the container in the fridge for 90 days, and then put into warmth for them to germinate. Keep lightly most until germination. Plant outdoors once the chance of frost is passed.
