New! Our substitute for Seeker White.
Plants are slightly taller than Seeker White; otherwise, Forever Silver is very similar in overall performance. 1 1/2–3" flower clusters are produced on strong stems in the field and greenhouse. Blooms are pure white, with some showing a slight blush of pink. Also known as annual statice and wavyleaf sea lavender. Ht. 24–32". Avg. 10,900 seeds/oz. Packet: 100 seeds.
DAYS TO GERMINATION:5-14 days at 70°F (21°C).

Harden-off and plant outside after the last frost. Direct seeding is not recommended.
