Wildflower seeds of the north Florida ecotype
are available through the Salter Tree and Herb Farm. The farm is
offering rare seed originating and grown in Florida. The collection covers Gaillardia to Echinacea
and includes three popular Tickseed flowers of the Coreopsis family: basalis, lanceolata, and
leavenworthii. We hope to help reestablish wildflowers by offering the public a chance to purchase
seed directly and select the variety or varieties you want.
We also offer an opportunity for you to become a part of Salter Tree and Herb Farmís mission of
preserving these rare seeds. Your contribution of $25 will help ensure future access to what is now
a diminishing diversity of Florida flowers and we will send you a variety of seed packets in
Many of the seeds available on this site can be grown state-wide and even throughout the southeastern
US. Try a few packets to begin beautifying a waste area, roadside or to naturalize your yard,
neighborhood, or community. Wildflower seeds provide food for a wide variety of wildlife and the
flowers are an incredible link in the chain of life. Be ready for wildflowers galore! Let them be
wild - they will drift and migrate, mix and mingle, and offer an exciting array of color.
