Grandma’s Hat Pins

Flowering this month is one of my favorite curiosities, Grandma’s hat pins. Eriocaulon decangulare hails from costal habits from New Jersey south to Texas, where it can be found in bogs and swamps. They thrive in the same conditions as pitcher plants. Perhaps it’s time to send some seed to the nursery since we haven’t offered this through Plant Delights since 2003. What do you think? Hardiness Zone 7a – 10b.

  1. Oh, I would LOVE to have one of these! They are a favorite wildflower on my walks through the local preserves. Unfortunately, I have not come across them growing in a place that I might obtain one for myself. I hope this makes it to your catalog.
