The most extensive collection of rare and unusual heirloom seeds

An heirloom variety is any vegetable, herb, or flower variety that has been cultivated for fifty or more years. Heirloom flowers are always open-pollinated cultivars with stable genetics—meaning, the seeds can be saved and will grow true to type, producing offspring that resembles the parent generation.

At Eden Brothers, we get excited about heirloom seeds because we are passionate about preserving genetic diversity in the world’s seedstock. Biological variance is essential to nature—plus, we think these rare and unusual heirloom seeds are so much more fun than hybrids!

Whimsical heirloom flowers for your cottage garden and cut flower patch

Take Chinese Houses Seeds, for instance. This California native wildflower boasts clusters of bicolored florets atop one another on a tall stem—a very efficient design for attracting pollinators! Love-in-a-mist is another whimsical flower straight out of a storybook. The feather petals and wispy foliage will certainly have you believe in fairies! A workhorse in the garden, try growing Love-In-A-Mist Mixed Colors and dry the seedpods for a fun textural element to use in bouquets.

Filter these lovely heirloom flowers using the tabs on the left-hand side of this page to find the perfect variety for your garden. Sort varieties by plant height, bloom season, and sowing method, among many other features.

All of our exotic heirloom flower seeds are easy to grow, so you can spend less time stressing and more time enjoying these quirky plants! Tuck a few of these eccentric flowers into a fresh bouquet for an intriguing arrangement and conversation starter.

Even if you have some limiting factors, you can still cultivate the exotic flower garden of your dreams. Blanket Flower and Creeping Thyme will thrive in a shade garden, and Foxglove Excelsior Mix and Wild Blue Iris are deer and rabbit resistant varieties.

If you don’t have a ton of space, try growing these heirloom flowers in containers! Pot up these beauties into a well-draining pot and you’ll get just as much out of them as you would in the field.
