HOUSTONIA

HOUSTONIA caerulea New Spring through Summer1862
Bluets, Quaker Ladies3-12cm  Zone: 3
I've always loved this tiny, spring blooming wildflower; but, until I lived in Nova Scotia I had never seen it in the wild. Although not uncommon in North America; seed is rarely offered, likely because it is a pain to collect. Small tufts of wiry foliage are topped by blue to white four-petalled flowers. In Nova Scotia they were happily naturalized on sun-baked slopes adjacent to highways. They will also grow in moister sites; full sun to light shade. Once established in the garden, allow them to self-sow and naturalize.
Germination Instructions: Easy, warm germinator.

HOUSTONIA longifolia New Late spring to mid-summer3776
Long-Leaved Bluet10-25cm
Native from Alberta east through Quebec, growing in poor, dry, often sandy, alkaline soil. Above a small rosette of basal foliage, clusters of pretty 4-petalled flowers over a long period. Well suited for the rock garden in full sun and sparse conditions; where it will happily self-sow.
Germination Instructions: Easy, warm germinator.
