JUSTICIA BRANDEGEANA - Does anyone know where I could buy Shrimp Plant seeds from? I looked on various seed suppliers sites such as Suttons Seeds, but no luck. I have never seen a Shrimp Plant here in Menorca and would love to pick up a packet of seeds when next back in UK or get them sent via the internet. Thanks!



hi if you type kitchengardenseeds they have them 8 seeds for 99pence in gb pound +postage. only found blue ones.

Wait, wait!! Shrimp Plant (Justicia brandegeeana) doesn't come in blue, Ken. Here's the first source I cam upon:

They do ship to Spain, Ninap, just click the "more destinations" link next to the US shipping cost. There are probably others, too, I just didn't look that far.

Hi - thanks everyone for your replies - I also believe that they do not come in blue, and the blue ones are actually Cerinthe Purpurascens, which I have grown for many years. I am after the reddy/pinky variety, which I have always thought of as a shrimp plant. Thanks Tugbrethil - I will follow the link you supplied! Thanks again everyone, Nina.

Hi Tugbrethil - just checked the link and they are out of stock at the moment but I have sent them an email to ask them to let me know when they are back in stock! Thanks again, Nina.
