Seed Exchange

TO: Fellow APS Members

The 2022/2023 Seed Exchange Is Now Open!!


Dear Fellow APS Members:

Welcome to the 2022/2023 seed exchange! Once again, we want to thank all the members who have donated seed this year and encourage everyone to consider donating next year. Any amount of seed, cleaned or uncleaned, is greatly appreciated and may be just what another member is looking to grow in their garden! Thank you in advance for helping to continue to make this a part of what the society has to offer members.

A list of all available seed from 2014 to 2021 along with any notes as to the collection location is now available. The request form is also available, which can be mailed to the address below or emailed. The minimum order for using PayPal is $5.00. Checks and cash are, of course, acceptable as always.

Donors – Donors may request as many packets of seed (up to 20) as they donated, free of charge. Donors are given preference for choices, when practical.

Overseas Members – May continue to request up to 10 packets free of charge. Additional packets, up to 10, may be requested with payment.

Ordering - Please use the request form and include the information requested so there is no misunderstanding. You may order up to 20 packets. The form is included in both pdf. and as a Word document for your convenience. It would be appreciated if orders are sent no later than March 1st.

The form can be emailed to me at: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
Or mailed to:

     Rick Wesseler
     2841 NE Shepard Road
     Bend, OR 97701

Substitutions: Some seed is very limited in quantity. We will make every effort to provide the seed, but the quantity sent may be small. In case the seed is no longer available, please include a few substitutions with your order.

Payment - The club has continued to hold the cost of each packet at 50 cents, but due to increasing postage cost, the decision was made to add $1.00 to each order to cover shipping.

Checks/Cash – Please make checks to “American Penstemon Society” and include with your request form.

Online – Mail or Email form and make payment for the total cost of the order by clicking on the 'Pay Online' link on this page. Payments can be made via PayPal or credit card. Orders will not be processed until payment is received.

The Seed Exchange is open to current APS members. New membership and membership renewals payments can be made via the Membership Page.
