Gas Plant


Notes: Early Autumn spikes of fragrant flowers with graceful stamens.


Instructions: Plant 1mm deep. Germinates in 28 to 42 days.


Habitat: Dictumus dislikes being disturbed once planted. As it ages,its production of flowers increases as does the height of the stems. They prefer a moderately fertile, sunny and open spot for best results. Once established these plants are drought tolerant.


History: The plant is commonly known today as the Burning Bush. It contains an essential oil with a lemon-like smell. The essential oil is flammable. The daughter of Swedish botanist Carl Linnaeus is said to have discovered the phenomenon when she ignited the air above the plants at the end of an unusually hot, windless summer day with a matchstick.

Bee Balm - A slow spreading plant that has a great aroma. Sprinkle its leaves and flowers in fruit salads. Good plant for poor, well drained soil. It has a unique flowering habit, funky seed heads which makes it a gorgeous as a cut flower. Butterflies and hummingbirds love this plant and it is drought tolerant and deer resistant. Note that the bergamot herb is not the source of bergamot oil.   Sea Holly - Vibrant silver blue foliage with metallic blue seedpods that sport radiant spiny bracts. Excellent in cutflowers & dried arrangements. Cut before they fully open as these will continue to open in the drying process. Hanging them upside down to dry ensures weaker stems do not flop over. Great conversation piece for a dinner bouquet or garden focal point.Long grown in seaside gardens for its salt tolerance. Deer resistant.   Shasta Daisy - Easy to  grow, these tough plants produce single and semi double blooms up to seven inches across! Fantastic in almost any conditions or soil. Shasta daisy is drought tolerant, deer resistant and self sows easily making them a great addition to any wildflower or rural garden. Cut them back immediately after flowering to encourage a second crop.
