Call for seeds from Director of the Seed Exchange


Hello Members,

The 2023-24 seed exchange will open on December 15 th as usual. I look forward to receiving
seed from as many of you as possible this year. Last year we received seed from 14 members. I
would like to thank them again now. They are Dylan Neibauer, Lynn Taylor, Elliot Gordon, John
Roden, Jay Shields, Lupita Wesseler, Beth Cordin, Jay Lunn, Donald Mitchell, Mikel Stevens,
Donald Barnett, Mike Kintgen, Carolyn Fifer and Andrey Zharkikh.

I am happy to receive any quantity of seed, cleaned or not. The exchange depends on donations
and the society members benefit from your generosity so they can grow a variety of
Penstemons in their gardens.

Last season we mailed out 391 packets of seed to 28 members in 11 states, Canada, and 5
counties in Europe.

Please consider donating seed today. Zip-lock type bags work great for this. Just list the variety,
wild or garden grown, and location. If you have additional information please include it, such as
flower color, elevation, etc. Other members may find the information useful.

You can mail donations to:
Rick Wesseler
2841 NE Shepard Road
Bend, OR 97701

Thank you in advance for your support of the exchange.
