Aloysia gratissima 4€/20seeds

Related to the common herb, lemon verbena but quite unlike it. When it comes to Aloysia gratissiam, what it lacks in leaf scent it ains in flower aroma!

Tough and drought tolerant shrub from Texas that gets covered in red in the summer. I like to cut it back hard every year.

Aquilegia barnebyi 4€/20seeds

A finely leaved species with uprights stems and small flowers of pink, red and yellow.

The classic blue/purple form of common columbine, I have collected this one in northern Greece and grow it well in my watered garden near Athens. Grows easily from seed and flowers in its second year. Quite long lived.

I am very fond of this pure white form of Aquilegia vulgaris, it just lights perfectly a semi shaded spot filling it with its white ‘butterflies’ in spring and early summer. Easy to grow and will self-seed easily. Grown separately from other forms to maintain the color but the occasional purple may occur.

The classic Mediterranean long lived perennial that covers acres of land throughout the eastern Mediterranean and flowers throughout spring for quite a long time.

Asphodelus albus 4€/20seeds

This species needs more moisture as it comes from the Balkan peninsula and higher elevations. The non-branched inflorescences with white flowers make it look like an Eremurus (so a good substitute if you can’t grow those due to warmer winters)

Asphodelus fistulosus 3€/20seeds

A small species with grassy upright foliage and pink flowers in spring. Can be a pest where it is not native so keep it under control by cutting back the flower stems before they fruit.

Similar to B.hispanica but with more rounded leaves and tallerstems. Both are tough, long-lived plants.

Ballota hispanica 4€/20seeds

Soft aromatic foliage, no running habit, tough and drought tolerant but looks better with a bit of water throughout summer.

Ballota pseudodictamnus 5€/20seeds

Similar to B.acetabulosa but smaller in all parts, this makes more mounded plants, more heavily covered in leaves.

Brachychiton populneus red form 5€/10seeds.

This popular small upright tree looks better when the flowers are of red colour instead of the classic white/light pink and those seeds were collected from a very dark red cultivar so you’ll have better chances of growing one!

Brassica cretica ssp. aegea 4€/20seeds.

I do believe this is one of the most beautiful Brassicas you can grow! Thick grey leaves that look like a succulent. Slowly forms a xeric shrub with big spikes of yellow flowers. Keep it as dry and sunny as possible in rocky soil for the best effect.

Brassica hilarionis 5€/20seeds

Similar to the above but flowering earlier and with white flowers instead of yellow. This is plant endemic to Cyprus. 

Brassicaceae sp. Lemon Foam 3€/20seeds

I’ve never been able to identify this Aurinia looking plant that I collected as seeds in a Colorado garden, but it is a very useful species in my gravel bed, for its compact green leaves and upright fluffy branched spikes of soft yellow flowers in spring. They have been happy and flowering well for 8 years now.

Callirhoe involucrata 4€/20seeds

I wouldn’t garden without this free flowering perennial again. Mallow like leaves in clump from which radiate branching stems that guide themselves between other plants or stand free and produce a multitude of magenta flowers over a long time. Takes water or drought easily.

Calylophus hartwegii 4€/20seeds

One of the few plants that stay in flower all summer long despite not receiving a drop of water in my dry garden. Cut it back to the ground in winter.

A typical crevice biennial Campanula that creates a rosette of grey leaves the first year and then radiating stems with big purple flowers the next one. Make sure it stays dry in the summer.

Campanula argaea 5€/30seeds

An upright species from Turkey, like a miniature version of Canterbury bells. 

Campanula celsii 4€/30seeds

Campanula incurva 4€/30seeds

A biennial or short-lived perennial campanula from central Greece, this is one of the few plants that you can grow in dry Mediterranean shade and will survive without any summer water. Or just grow it in a big rock garden as it requires good drainage. It produces some of the biggest campanula flowers in the genus.

A rather sophisticated Centaurea with low green feathery foliage and big flowers with black bracts and burgundy florets. Can be short lived, especially without good drainage.

Centaurea lactucifolia 5€/10seeds

Short lived species (usually biennial) with big, imposing burgundy flower heads at the end of the stems. A favorite.

A classic Mediterranean species, forming rounded mounds of apple green foliage that have a long succession of purple flowers in spring through early summer.Very drought tolerant.

Cistus salviifolius 4€/20seeds

Another rock rose, this time in a smaller plant (at least in height) with dark green leaves and relatively big white flowers. It will do well even in part shade, as it flowers profusely in pink forest openings in nature. Full sun will do it too. No summer water needed, unless you have to occasionally.

Clematis hirsutissima 4€/20seeds

Not a climbing, but a herbaceous perennial Clematis with upright stems topped with cute purple flowers. Takes some drought but is not entirely drought tolerant. Great in gravel.

Clinopodium vulgare 3€/20seeds

A common European herb, I like this for the leaf scent so put it a place where you accidentally step on it as you pass by.

Cneorum tricoccon 5€/20seeds

Few Mediterranean shrubs are so perfect as C.tricoccon. Green leathery foliage in a naturally very round small shrub, small yellow flowers and spring which are followed by red three-seeded (tricoccon) fruits in summer.

Dianthus gratianopolitanus Pink Cloud 3.5€/20seeds

With grey, mat forming foliage and light pink flowers that completely cover the plant in spring. Good drainage and limited summer water will lengthen the life of these pinks.

Dianthus gratianopolitanus Red Eye 3€/20seeds

This one needs a bit of extra water but forms a great ground covering pink for a sunny or semi shady situation. Feathery petals that beg for attention.

Dianthus ‘Old Square Eyes’ 3.50€/20seeds

I love this old-fashioned pink with big single flowers and a big red square eye in the center and I’m curious what will come out of those seed. At least something worthwhile whether they come true or if they have crossed with smaller species. 

Dianthus pyrenaicus 3.5€/20seeds
