Welcome to Sunshine Flower Seeds where the focus is on unique flower selections including some hard to find cottage favorites, water wise, open-pollinated and native varieties. We are located on the beautiful Central Coast of California so you will find many California natives, coastal selections, desert jewels and drought tolerant varieties. All Sunshine Flower Seeds are packed by hand with love and as such sometimes it may take some extra time for your items to be packed. Your patience and patronage is always appreciated. This is a small family business and each and every purchase is a vote of support for small business in America which is keeping a lot of families and communities alive these days. Thank you for taking the time to care enough to read about us and know who you're supporting with your purchase. No, we are not some company in China trying to look like a small American business website nor are we an arm of an American conglomerate corporation which is just really a brand name that is impossible to really figure out what parent company your money is really going to and therefore your support.  

Spend some time and you will find a special selection of beautiful flowers but look closer and you will discover many of the varieties are low water or drought tolerant, native and/or attract butterflies, hummingbirds and pollinators. Create a pollinator paradise in a couple of containers on a balcony or turn your whole yard into a beautiful habitat garden with our flower seeds. As our water resources are being stretched to the limit landscape water is one place where we can make a big difference by reducing or replacing thirsty lawns and bedding plants with water-wise plant choices. Low water, drought tolerant and native plants reduce water consumption, typically do not need fertilizer, are low maintenance with less green waste and provide needed habitat for local wildlife. No I do NOT mean a dull, boring, dried up, all sage and silver yard. I'm talking a vibrant landscape full of green plants, bright flowers and bursting with life!

When I was young I spent a lot of time reading about and cutting out flowers from my grandmother's flower catalogs. Then I would sort them by type, color, height and create dream gardens. I also spent a lot of time in the vegetable garden with great-grandpa and my mom and in the flower beds with grandma. Later I worked with my dad and grandpa in the fields on our small family farm. This work sent me off to college to find a career that didn't include weed pulling. For years I lugged around pots full of treasured plants and books, redoing yards along the way but not feeling settled. I am returning to what I loved from the beginning which of course was flowers and growing plants. You can take the girl off the farm but you can't take the farmer out of the girl.

Join me as I share my love of flowers and their benefits by signing up for the newsletter which will showcase new varieties, water-wise landscaping tips, photos and coupons. The signup box is located at the bottom of each page or at checkout choose newsletter option, no I do not automatically sign you up when making a purchase. You will not receive emails from us except for purchase related information unless you sign up for the newsletter. Also I encourage you to create an account so checkout will be a snap (we do NOT store your credit card info), you will be able to save a wishlist, track orders and reorder items easily.

Thank you for your interest and taking the time to read about Sunshine Flower Seeds.

Happy Sowing and Growing!
