Q. Who is Mr. Smarty Plants?

A: There are those who suspect Wildflower Center volunteers are the culpable and capable culprits. Yet, others think staff members play some, albeit small, role. You can torture us with your plant questions, but we will never reveal the Green Guru's secret identity.

Please forgive us, but Mr. Smarty Plants has been overwhelmed by a flood of mail and must take a break for awhile to catch up. We hope to be accepting new questions again soon. Thank you!

Title: Sources of seeds for Cudweed Sagewort and Artemisia ludoviciana
Answered by: Nan Hampton

QUESTION:

Where can a person buy seeds for Cudweed Sagewort. Artemisia ludoviciana?

ANSWER:

Visit the National Suppliers Directory on the Wildflower Center web page. There you can search for nurseries and seed companies in your state or region that specialize in native seeds and plants. With a quick search in Seed Companies in the Midwest I found a couple of companies--Ion Exchange Native Seed and Plant Nursery in Harper's Ferry, Iowa and Prairie Moon Nursery in Winona, Minnesota--with seeds of Cudweed sagewort (Artemisia ludoviciana) for sale over the internet. Since I didn't search the entire list, you may find other nurseries/seed companies with seeds available.
