Jefferson planted seeds of Sensitive Plant, a tender annual, in an oval flower bed at Monticello on March 22, 1811. The Sensitive Plant has been a favorite curiosity of gardeners for centuries, and was included in many early nineteenth-century seed lists. The one-foot-high plants produce pink, mimosa-like, pompom flowers in mid-summer. A favorite feature of a child's garden, the unusual leaves of the Sensitive Plant curl up to the touch. Sow the seeds after the last spring frost in a sunny garden site.

Approximately 25-30 seeds per pack.
