Seeds of Success

Seeds of Success was established in 2001 by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), the Royal Botanic Gardens and many additional partners including the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center to collect, conserve and develop native plant materials for stabilizing, rehabilitating and restoring lands in the United States.

These partners share a common protocol and coordinate seed collecting and species targeting efforts. Collected material is being used for research such as germination trials, common garden studies and protocol establishment. Portions of each collection are also being held in long-term storage facilities for conservation.

To date, Seeds of Success has over 18,000 native seed collections in its National Collection. The seeds will help to ensure the future of healthy ecosystems and proliferation of native plants communities. These ecosystems are essential to the health of wildlife as well as humans.
