These seeds were collected from Acmella oleracea, also known as Buzz Buttons, Electric Daisy, Tingflowers, and Toothache Plant. This perennial likes to live in sun to partial shade where it grows to about a foot and a half high. The red and yellow blossoms attract a wide variety of birds, bees, and butterflies. They also work great when used as cut or dry flowers. They bloom repeatedly throughout the summer and fall. The leaves can be eaten cooked or raw and leave you with a memorable experience ranging from spicy to tingling to numbness on the tongue. This is a very popular ingredient in some places like Madagascar for one example. An oil can be extracted from the plant and used in cooking as well. USDA Hardiness Zones 9b to 11.
