Self-Seeding Plants

blocks of rudbeckia, alyssum, snapdragonsAs many people put new plants in their garden at this time of year, may I suggest you put in a few self-seeding plants? The magic of self-seeding plants is they come back year after year!

Here’s a few plants that I’ve had come back in new spots in my garden:

  • White alyssum (not the purple kind; that doesn’t seem to re-seed)
    (pictured in lower block)
  • Rudbeckia, commonly known as black-eyed susan (pictured in upper right block)
  • Snapdragons (pictured in upper left block)
  • Tomatoes (let a few rot on the ground and the seeds spill out, and you’ll get new tomato seedlings next spring)
  • Echinacea
  • Dill (if you’re lucky)
  • Coreopsis
  • Portulaca, commonly known as Rose Moss
