Availability: Usually ships in 2-3 business days
Jefferson forwarded seeds of this tender annual vine to his two daughters, Mary and Martha, in 1791 from Philadelphia. The seeds were planted "in boxes in the window," perhaps to serve as houseplants. The Cypress Vine, a morning glory relative with star-shaped scarlet and white flowers, was known in late eighteenth century Virginia gardens. Plant the seed after the last frost in spring in full sun and allow the plants to twine up a trellis, pole, young tree, or fence. Seeds will not germinate until soil is warm.

Approximately 10-15 seeds per pack.

Line Drawing from New Britton and Brown Illustrated Flora by H. A. Gleason (1958).
