This is old but might be worth contacting them http://www.wildflower.org/conservation_seedbank/results.php?...

Looks like they might be available here http://www.pineridgegardens.com/Seed%20Listing.html

It sure is pretty!

It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

Your searching is better than mine. Thumbs up Rolling on the floor laughing Will definitely give em a try. Their web site is a hoot. Looks like an Angelfire home page from 1987. Green Grin!

Knowing that 1 package of seed should cost no more than 1$ or so max! More likely ~ 60 cents. Sigh. Of course, when I see shipping costs like that, I always say "Well - I better buy some more to make this worth while". I am sure many of you do that.

I really would like these seeds. I ain't gonna spend 8 $ for them.

I tried seeds direct in garden here, but they did not sprout for me.
Maybe should start indoors or try again.

I am thinking now that I have grown these. Pretty sure of it. I remember now the name Chocolate flower. And that appears to be one of the common names. Now I cannot find seed packs. And I cannot remember when I tried to grow them. Or how they did. Of course I am not absolutely sure I did. Heh Maybe I saw the seed packs at Earl May and considered. Oh well.

Not sure whether to blame it on;

1 - Poor record keeping
2 - Poor and faltering memory
3 - Combo of 1 & 2

Seems to me I usually start these on the mat indoors. I usually do the perennials in the winter indoors or out in the greenhouse, which gets pretty hot during the day even in winter. I have had one or two self seed, but sowing outdoors won't be reliable. I've never had a problem transplanting them.
As you can see . . . I don't keep records. If I'm particularly sharp that day I'll put a date on the plant label.

The B. lyrata seeds I sowed 1-17 (covered, room temperature) started emerging 1-29. About half are up now. The house gets pretty cool at night in the winter (55 degrees). I don't know if B. lyrata seeds like that or just tolerate it. Hilarious!

They're pretty tolerant, mine survive outside in winter and we occasionally get a light frost.
