Flower Native American Pea Partridge 200 Non-GMO, Heirloom Seeds
Cloudless Giant Sulphur, Orange Sulphur, Little Yellow, and Sleepy Orange Butterflies all use the plant as their larval food. The seeds that form in the flat bean pod are an important source of food for game birds like dove and quail, as well as for songbirds.
The roots have nitrogen-fixing properties that enhance the soil that they are growing in. Over-all, this is one of our best habitat plants.
The Partridge Pea is easily grown in sandy or loamy soils, as long as they are well drained. Though they germinate in late spring, be sure to plant them in the fall. They need to over-winter in the ground. Blooms from June to October. For best results, plant in the fall. Germination rate about 70% or better.
Our Non-GMO seeds are sustainable. Our packaging is environmentally friendly, climate friendly, reusable, and recyclable.

This is an heirloom seed, meaning it has been passed down from generation to generation for at least 75 years. As a rule, heirloom seeds taste better and will grow the same year after year.
These are also open pollinated meaning they will reproduce themselves. While all heirlooms are open pollinated not all open pollinated seeds are heirlooms.
Companion planting is planting seed varieties near each other to benefit one or more of the plants. Some plants benefit each other by attracting beneficial insects, keeping away unwanted bugs. Others aid in pollination. Some plants have working relationships with each other and others have antagonistic (hostile) relationships.
Freshly Packed: These seeds are packed for the current growing season and will provide high germination rates next year as well.
