Harvested from the gardens at Monticello.
In 1786, as he was serving as Minister to France, Jefferson sent a collection of seeds and plants home to friends, including the lovely blue flowering Heliotrope: "To be sowed in spring. A delicious flower . . . the smell rewards the care." This is the species, or wild form, of heliotrope identical to the one Jefferson knew in the eighteenth century. It grows to four feet in full sun and is surprisingly different from the dwarf cultivars grown in gardens today.

Heliotrope is a tender perennial grown as an annual but can be removed from the garden and grown as a houseplant during the winter months.

Approximately 70-75 seeds per pack.
