Of the flora listed in the respective summaries and image & data pages, we can obtain seed from most of the species marked with a  magenta stripe on the left. They are growing in various numbers on our site. While we use the seed we collect to sow (or germinate seedlings for) new areas, we are willing — with advance notice — to collect and/or save some for others.
