Hi, sorry for cross posting, but it just occurred to me that people from this forum are probably most familiar with seeds....


I just bought this "Climbing Plant Mixture." The packet says it has
- morning glory
- cardinal climber
- thunbergia Black Eye Susan
- sweet peas (identified)
- tall single mix nasturtium (identified)

I have grown sweet peas and nasturtium before, so I can identify them. If you recognize the rest of the seeds, I would appreciate it if you could identify them for me. More than one response is welcome as it helps in confirming the id.

Thank you very much in advance!

Here is my own identification:
A: sweet pea
B: nasturtium

RE: Seed ID (Climbing Plants)

I agree with the previous comments-

C is some kind of MG, possibly 'Ensign mix'.
d is DEFINITELY thunbergia (black eyed susan vine)
E is cardinal climber.

RE: Seed ID (Climbing Plants)

I think there are numerous varieties of morning glories that have peanut butter colored seeds.

I bought 2 packs of Shiva MG, and one was the normal color and the other was peanut butter colored.


RE: Seed ID (Climbing Plants)

To summarize,
A - Sweet pea
D- B-eyed Suzi
E- Cardinal Climber.

That was fun!
