Amazing seed order

What a treasure to be able to plant heirloom Native American seeds!

Thriving multiclaw

We planted in early August. Germination took some time, but mostly produced plants.And by late September the plants are large bearing many claws. White-lined sphinx moths lay many eggs on them but only a few caterpillars seem to make it to large size. The large leaves are pretty spectacular in our xeriscape. Very happy with our plants.

Robust growth

Planted with my monsoon garden. These are robust fast growers and they love the heat. Flowering starts when only a foot tall. Highly recommend these!
