Abelmoschus esculentus - BURGUNDY OKRA
$2.00
A rather striking deep wine red form of this southern vegetable which might well be used in the back of the border. The 3-4 inch flowers are yellow suffused red with a deep red center. 4-6 feet tall, 60 days. The seeds when rubbed together give off a curious musky citrus smell.
Other Annuals

Fragrant Perennials
Abronia fragrans - SAND VERBENA
$2.00
Though seldom grown or offered, this is an indispensable plant for the evening or fragrance garden. If sown early it will bloom the first year, but is a hardy perennial to zone 5. It is a trailing plant to two feet across, which when established will bloom all summer diffusing its vanilla-like perfume through the evening garden from white flowers in verbena-like heads. Best to remove the seed from the little pod and give a month of chilling–plant in a sunny well-drained spot. Few seeds.

Fragrant Trees & Shrubs
Acer hybrid - EURASIAN MAPLE
$2.50
This useful new maple is actually a hybrid between the Norway Maple (which occurs through Europe into the Middle East) and the Shantung Maple from China and Korea. It seems to have inherited some of the better characteristics from both parents. From the Shantung comes its purple blush to the spring growth, its lovely yellow-orange-red fall color and samaras sometimes artistically marked with purple spots. From the Norway it receives its more arboreal habit, rapid growth rate and hardiness. Likely at least zone 4 hardiness.
Fragrant Trees & Shrubs
Acer leucoderme - CHALKBARK MAPLE
$2.50
Native to the SE US, it is rarely seen elsewhere. A small tree related to sugar maple, with more refined leaves and similar fall colors. It is shade tolerant, drought resistant and adapted to calcareous soils–what more could one ask. The chalk colored bark is due to a lichen–a lovely tree. Zone 5.
