These gorgeous spring blooms are native biennial wildflowers in the PNW. While they are an amazing early spring source of nutrition for pollinators and beneficial insects, their lovely purple spikes make great cut flowers, and their pearly seed pods are very valuable as dried cuts. Lunaria is absolutely worth the extra effort of starting in late summer + overwintering for stunning spring blooms. The root system development that happens throughout the fall and winter will mean stronger plants and even more spectacular blooms in spring.
Germination and Growing info: Direct sow in August for April/May blooms the following year. Plant seeds about 1/2" deep and keep soil moist until germination occurs. Care for them well in the waning days of summer with plenty of irrigation and careful weeding, so they can be as well-established as possible before your first frost. Spring sowing option: Sow after last frost for blooms/seed pods the following spring/summer. Note: we do not recommend pinching Lunaria.
Final spacing min. 12” apart.
Packet: 20 seeds.
