I have a few seeds, 9 or 10, from 2015 if you want them.

Alana !!!!! Yes, Yes ! LOL...I've always grown centranthus and never had the white form...then 4 years ago, just before we moved up here, I'd come across the white centranthus and planted one to get it started in the garden and did not bring seeds up here with me...of any form...and it had taken me a long time before to find the white. You know, everyone sells the pinks, thinking it's more showy, a better seller, same with Gaura.

So, 2 years ago I spotted a pink one on the bluffs along the ocean and grabbed some seeds from it...it's a bit different from the pink or reddish ones I've always had, a bit multicolored...and then I was in a small wholesale nursery in Oregon and on my way to the restroom, I saw a flat of seedlings and by chance stopped to look and it was 2" pots of white Gaura. I was so thrilled...LOL..

Then yesterday I was still thinking about white centranthus and how I still want it...and decided that maybe SOMEONE would have it and it doesn't hurt to ask....

I haven't built up much stock for trading this year, but offer in case any of these should interest you...

Papaver Persian Blue
Salvia transyllvanica
Sporobolus heterolopis / Prairie dropseed / grass
Panicum virgatum / Panic Grass
Tridens flavus
NOID agastache, gotten from Duane Werner and forget the name, wouldn't come true anyway, but it's a tall lavender form, very nice..

If you want any of these, PLMK....

Need your address please and THANK YOU very much for responding!

I agree. The white forms of most plants are more attractive (to me) than their colorful counterparts, especially Gaura and Centranthus but many others too; unbeatable clean partners for green.

I'll send you a tree-mail.

And.......Coleonema...everyone sells the pink flowered form...I got one once, by mistake and after having to cut off a lot of that 'pinkness', I finally just pulled the plant...but the white form...beautiful. It's not that I hate PINK, but with some, it's just too much...LOL...
