Jewel-hued edible flowers adorn 3'-long trailing vines.

In the 18th Century, during his massive botanical naming project, Carl Linnaeus learned that his daughter, Elizabeth, saw flashing when she looked at nasturtium flowers in the evening. Scientists of the day theorized about electricity, phosphorescence, and the paranormal. Linnaeus was content to dub it "The Elizabeth Linnaeus Phenomenon" and leave it at that. You, too, can observe it: it's an optical illusion caused by the interaction of green and orange in the pale light of dusk.

Art Packs 

Hudson Valley Seed Co. Art Packs unite practical aspirations in the garden with the universal human desire for beauty, meaning, and joy. Each year, they release a call for art seeking artists to interpret the varieties in their collection, and hundreds of artists apply from across the United States. But there’s a lot more to an Art Pack than the beautiful exterior. Open it up, and a whole seedy world unfolds.

Meet the Makers

Hudson Valley Seed Co is the best source for heirloom and open-pollinated garden seeds and beautiful garden-themed contemporary art. They are a values-driven seed company that practices and celebrates responsible seed production and stewardship. They have our own certified organic farm in upstate New York where they produce much of what they sell. 

The folks at Hudson Valley Seed Company are both farmers and storytellers who are committed to growing organically, sourcing locally and sustainably, and preserving crop diversity by selecting unique, rare, and hard-to-find varieties. Every seed in their catalog is open pollinated, many are heirloom and organic, and they are never GMO.  They believe that a seed is more than meets the eye: it is a time capsule telling tales of the plants, crops, and people that came before us, and they work with a range of artists as diverse as their seeds to pass those stories down to present and future gardeners.
