What is an Antique Flower? Antique, or heirloom flowers are open-pollinated seed varieties that originated fifty or more years ago. Open-pollinated flowers are fertilized by insects, hummingbirds or wind, and the resulting seeds will produce plants that are identical or very similar to the parent plant.
Our mission: Our mission calls for new respect for our common resources of seed, soil, water, wildlife and community,-by saving rare heirloom flowers, by producing organically certified flower seeds and naturally grown plants, by enhancing habitat for pollinators with open-pollinated and native flowers, and by committing to sharing our seed bounty with groups that teach the importance and joy of gardening.

You have to do some of your own homework. Google the latin names or look them up on good botanical plant websites you should find images and information to help you identify or at least compare species. Trying to include all of that here would be tough. If photos of the edible species were included but not the inedible or toxic ones, that might encourage people to make mistakes and fail to properly identify what they have.

Species in the genus are quite consistent. The leaves are opposite, simple, oval. Most loose their leaves in the fall but some are evergreen. Many have sweetly-scented, bell-shaped flowers with a sweet, edible nectar. The fruit can be red, blue or black berry, usually containing several seeds. In most species the berries are mildly poisonous, but a few have edible berries.
