Collomia heterophylla Vari-leaved Collomia

Description
Small hispid foliage contrasts the light pink flowers that have yellow and white centres. One of the few representatives of the Polemoniaceae (Jacob's Ladder) plant family in the Victoria region. Though the flowers are fairly small, this annual groundcover will attract larger flying bees to shaded sites and help restore groundcover to woodland areas. As with all native annuals, this plant will spread by seed to form larger flowering patches as long as the area isn't mulched after the seed drops in late spring/early summer. In order to germinate, the small seeds need to remain near the soil surface where the fall rains coincide with their germination. Through fall and winter, the new leaves will form fuzzy, green carpets of small foliage and then go on to bloom the following spring.

Growing From Seed

Growing your own native plants from seed is the most economical way to add natives to your project or home garden. The seeds of native plants have built-in dormancy mechanisms that protect them from germinating before killing frosts or periods of drought.

In cultivation, the successful gardener must become familiar with these conditions to unlock the dormancy mechanism and stimulate germination. We are developing thorough seed germination categories in the Seed Details section above to help you successfully grow the native seed we sell.
