Seed Identification

Hello Everyone,

I was hoping that someone would know of a good website to identify seeds. Twice I have traded for Echinacea seeds and both times I have received chaff, the brown spines.

I am trying very hard not to be dissapointed but when you think you have found a sought after seed only to find out that you have not, it can be a bit discouraging.

I would like to find a seed site to help everyone including myself identify seeds so that we all can become more familiar with our passions.

I enjoy the forums on the gardenweb very much and I have learned tons of new information on many different subjects. I hope that my post is read as searching for a helping tool and not a complaint.
