    Devil's Claw Seeds

    I recall a while back someone here posted a giveaway for some of these seeds. Pack of ten maybe? Cannot recall. Recently I harvested seed from several pods, not sure precisely which one, but the seeds are white (which is not a certain way to tell variety as some can be black and others white in the same species, so I hear) and the flowers are mostly purplish pink with some yellow to the throat. That said, it seemed demand was fairly high, so I thought I might offer up some here to those who did not get any in that giveaway. I am thinking maybe five lots of ten - fifteen seeds each - one per person. If you are interested, post your number, (start with one, etc.) TF handle/screenname, and winners will be determined by RNG in about a week. Postage on you, via padded envelope. Paypal or concealed cash, your choice. Say $3.50. That should cover the postage. Wanna skip that part? Offer me something interesting in trade...but not necessary. These seeds are from Spring 2017, so pretty darn fresh. Should be no trouble starting them in the spring. Do wait till it warms up a bit to plant, but either way it should be ok. Plant in the ground if you can, or in BIG pots. Small pots do not work well. If your name comes up as a winner - I will list names here after the drawing, then email me gnixon@satx.rr.com to hash out the details. Include your name, TF handle, and address, so I can keep everyone straight. Good luck. Ciao!

    by the way, Peter D'amato says more or less (think it was him) who said find some of these seeds/pods in some weedy lot, and they probably won't sprout or grow well. Get them from a fellow gardener and they will most likely do well.

    White seeds and pinkish flowers are Proboscidea parviflora; if the pods have 4 hooks, var. hohokamiana.

    Edit: messed up the variety name

    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.
