Please take one guess as to what the seeds on the plate are. I'll post randomly when a second guess can be posted.

I'll post a clue after a few rounds of guesses.

The person who guesses correctly will win the seeds.

I'm looking for the type and specific cultivar name.

Lisa, I love a challenge but your games are getting harder and harder, lol!!

Can we ask questions? Like is the seed still in the husk?

Looks like a basil .... but we have to guess the cultivar?

It's about 3x the size of a columbine seed.

Here's a clue.

It's a perennial in zones 4-9 and can grow in sun or shade.

In time and with thought, clues will add up. Smiling

Please don't bother looking at my plant list, they aren't on there.

Not Gaillardia.

Clues:
The foliage and blooms are edible.
The foliage is used for jellies and iced drinks.
There are very fragrant varieties
