I have some unusual white flower seeds:

Incarvillea sinensis "Cheron" These are annuals, about 12"-18" high, feathery foliage with white tubular flowers. Likes part shade. Self-seeds politely. Very easy

Orlaya "White Lace". 18-24" annual, lovely umbels . Self seeds nicely. Photo here:

Nicotiana alata "Aztec". The "unimproved" flowering tobacco, taller than the hybrids, longer-blooming than N. sylvestris, VERY highly scented. I've grown a lot of Nikkies and this is the best so far.

Let me know if you want any of these. SASBE is fine-- I'm trying to cut down on my seed habit...

I grew a dinnerplate dahlia called 'White Perfection' and it is a 8-10 inch white blooming dahlia. Let me know if you're interested!

RE: datura seeds

I also have some white datura seeds if you want

RE: WANTED: Wanted: white flowers

Don't forget white Petunia. I like them because you can just about throw anything at them. Sun,shade,heat,cold,Drought and flood. Plus they are always in bloom.
I got some with nice 4" blooms and spread nicely.
Email me if you would like some..

RE: WANTED: Wanted: white flowers

They all sound interesting! I have sent all an email.
Thanks guys!

I would love a white perennial sweep pea plant, if anyone has one to spare. There are some, occasionallly, growing wild around here but the white seems to be rare. All I see in the ditches are the various pink shades.
