Meadowfoam

Price: $ 3.90

Limnathes douglasii
One of the best companion plants.  Attracts bees for pollination, and hoverflies for predation on those pesky aphids! Meadowfoam honey is reputedly one of the most delicious, with flavours of vanilla and toasted marshmallow! An extremely stable edible oil similar to canola can also be extracted from the seed and is prized by the food and cosmetic industries.  Fast growing annual with pretty white and yellow flowers on a low carpet of pale green leaves.   Height to 25cm. Punnet of 6 plants.
