Dimorphocarpa wislizeni

Spectacle Pod

Spectacle Pod is an upright annual 1-3 ft. tall. Heads of white flowers with changing center colors to tell pollinators what's new. The pods are spectacles indeed, spiraling around the stem with such precision you feel you're reading the mathematical language of the world, and if you look down the stem from above, there is the primal vortex. Seeds prefer cool, sandy soil. Sow in fall or cold stratify 30 days and sow in spring. Zones 5-8.
