My mother's first name is Mignonette. She was told that she was named for a French flower. Where can I get these flower seeds? I would love to have a picture of what the flower looks like and some seeds to plant in my flower garden.

Mignonette is Reseda odorada. The plants are native to Europe, North Africa, and parts of Asia but have been widely introduced here and have become popular garden flowers.

Seeds are available from Thompson & Morgan, PO Box 1308, Jackson, NJ 08527-0308. Phone (800) 274-7333.
