Give them and grow them any time of year! Each bag has a quote from Shakespeare and the Folger Shakespeare Library logo. Three varieties to choose from:
“…Here’s flowers for you; Hot Lavender, mints, savory, marjoram; The marigold that goes to bed wi’ the sun And with him rises weeping: these are the flowers Of middle summer…” The Winters Tale
This highly aromatic plant is a favorite. It is an evergreen that will produce flowers every summer after its second year of growth. It is an excellent culinary herb. Both the flower and leaves are used as a seasoning. Seeds will germinate in 14-21 days.
“…I am the very pink of courtesy.” Romeo and Juliet
These dainty ¾" pink flowers produce a profusion of perfume. The foliage is a mat of small leaves and delicate branching stems that grow 6"-10" high. Seeds germinate in 7-10 days. You should have blooms the first year and will re-bloom year after year.
“Who are the violets now That strew the green lap of the new come spring?” Richard II
Large flowers on robust stems are lightly-scented with a wide array of colors. Removal of spent flowers will promote more blooms. Seeds will germinate in 8-15 days with flowers growing to 9" tall.
