I have seeds for hybrid Streptocarpus (houseplant, pictured) and several species of Primula and Dodecatheon (small hardy perennials). Take a look at my trade list. Always looking for interesting alpines and other small perennials: gentiana, saxifraga, androsace, soldanella, ramonda, haberlea, pulsatilla, hepatica, parnassia, meconopsis, cyclamen. Inquiries welcome by email or through my gardening blog (link is below picture).

I have many alpine seeds, some you listed above, and would like to trade for your Primula and Dodecatheon seeds, but not the streptocarpus, only outdoor please.

Along with Streps and Primulas and poppies, have added some tomatoes, herbs, and perennials/biennials to my trade list.

Looking for other tomatoes, as well as cucumbers, onions, basil, and other things I may not have thought of....

Good time of day kvbk! From my understanding Hybrids will never be true to name, when grow from seeds. Otherwise nice plants you have. Be well fellow Gardener!

Hi nadezhda. My Streptocarpus are not named hybrids. But your understanding is correct. Named or not, their seeds will not produce plants identical to the parents.
