Did you know?

  • Flowering season refers to the main season of bloom. However, some plants may sporadically flower at other times of the year, especially if winter is mild.
  • Within a species, flowering usually begins first in South Florida and progresses north.
  • The length of the flowering season can be longer in South Florida. In fact, some species there may flower at any time of the year.
  • It’s best not to deadhead after a bloom – it will limit re-seeding.
  • The Foundation’s single-species seed packets cover about 25 sq. ft.

Please read: Seeds must be scarified.

Seeds have hard, water impermeable seed coats that prevent germination. Lightly abrading seeds on sandpaper or a concrete surface (scarification) for a few seconds will allow them to absorb water and germinate. To test seeds after scarification, place a few in a shallow dish of water. Sufficiently scarified seeds will swell within an hour or two; swollen seeds must be sown immediately. If most seeds do not swell, repeat the abrasion and retest. Scarified seeds should be sown within a week or two. Germination of non-scarified seeds will be very limited.
