Ask City Parks For Seeds
To acquire new and unusual plants, most city run parks will give you seeds if you ask. Just tell the gardeners (when you visit the park) what seeds you want. They will tell you when they will be collecting the seeds. Take some tiny zip lock bags with you to put the seeds in and masking tape to label the bags. Remember to get directions from the City Parks and Garden Staff for best time to plant, where to plant (sun, shade, etc.) Water and enjoy when they bloom.
