Antique annuals






Horticulture 74: 7

Antique annuals

Seed catalogs have begun to reflect the revived interest in old-fashioned annuals. This renewal of interest has been prompted by the growing number of gardeners seeking to recreate period gardens and by the limited range of choices available in most seed catalogs. In addition, old open-pollinated annuals tend to be cheaper, much more elegant, less uniform, and exhibit a greater range of unusual colors and combinations than modern hybrid strains. Nasturtiums, French marigolds, snapdragons, and nemesias are discussed. Sidebars provide advice on recreating old-fashioned flowers and raising heritage annuals from seed.
