Hi, I'm interested in tracking down a flower called Aaron's
Rod.  Does anyone know where I can find seeds or plants for
this?  Does anyone have a good idea for other Biblical plants
that I could grow.  Thanks for the advice, please e-mail me,

Cheerio Gardeners!

How about Jacob's Ladder (Polemonium caeruleum)?

Jacob's Ladder is a nice early plant.  My plant grows well
in the shade of an apple tree.

I have a lant indoors that is called Moses in the Cradle.  Its really
quite pretty and very easy to take care of.

Happy Gardening!

Liz:
The more common name for Aaron's Rod is Mullein - the Latin name is
Verbascum thapsus. I haven't seen seeds for it. It can be found
growing in vacant lots and distressed lands - dry and gravelly.

I know herbs, herbcrafts, flavored oils & vinegars.
Please visit my web site www.io.org/~shodan/
Dylan rules ok.

Hi,
Ah well, Mullien...that I know. If collecting seeds in the wild is
difficult, you can get Mullien seeds from Richter's, they have a web site
at http://www.richters.com

Did you know that in medieval times the flower stalk of mullien was
dipped in tallow and used as a torch? Wouldn't that be cool for outdoor
parties this summer?

Dear Liz;

Another source for Biblically related plants is Gilbertie's Herb Farm, 7
Sylvan Lane, Westport CT.  We don't have a phone or zip, but any inquiries
to the above address should get you a response.

Also, we are not *certain* they do mail-order, but it's worth looking
into--the prices are quite good.
