Does anyone have a supplier of turnera ulmifolia seeds? I love this plant and was just lucky enough this spring to find 'one' in a nursery. I have grown this from seed before but cannot remember who the supplier was. Thanks
Welcome! Thanks for wanting them ... found a new company with exotic seeds!
chances are that if you still have the one plant, just wait until spring and you will have dozens more popping up everywhere.
Tracksinsand - Good point! We use to grow these in St.Louis as little annuals, didnt realize that they are subshrubs in reality. Allan Armitage started this plant as an annual a few years back.
if you don't get any seedlings, i'll hunt around for some this spring. d-mail me to remind me.
Where in mid Florida do you live? I am in Grayton Beach. We are zone 9 as well but just drive in 1 mile north and they are in zone 8 - not much difference. I have pulmerias on my deck right now, they look bad because they should be dropping their leaves. I am hoping no frost but I do have frost blankets for them. I do have a horticulture degree but am not use to this zone so I am trying everything. I love jatropha and it is flowering as I write this and have tried a few tropicals like hibiscus (don't care for them too much). My Diamond Frost euphorbia is flowering like crazy - probably a perennial for us, it will be interesting to see how it survives through the rest of the year. My specialty is arboriculture and I was an arborist in St. Louis for years. I do miss it. Not too crazy about palm trees! I grew a grass called Ruby Grass (melinias) and it is just wonderful. Pretty pinks blooms all summer - a great container plant. It is even flowering right now - good combo for muehlies.
I will remind you about turnera. Mine is still doing great, kinda spindley, maybe it will hold on as well. Have a nice Sunday.
