Who can order germplasm?

Germplasm is available in limited quantities for research and educational purposes; germplasm is not available for home gardening use. Because one of our goals is to maintain genetic diversity as a resource for the floriculture industry, many of our accessions are wild or landrace types having great variation. As a result, the plants, flowers, fruits, and seeds that grow from our accessions may not all look alike and may not be ornamental or marketable. Additionally, many of our accessions are not adapted to the United States and may require special handling to flower and produce seed.
