It feels like I’m always daydreaming of more plants, flowers, and seeds for my garden! (Probably because I usually am!) My Etsy favorites list is ever-growing and I just can’t get enough of the exotic, beautiful plants and flowers available on Etsy.
We all know Etsy as home to some of the world’s best crafters and most creative artisans. Did you know gardeners can find a treasure trove of must-haves as well?!
Last year I bought some Roma tomato seeds from Everwilde Farms on Etsy and they worked out to be amazing! The germination rate proved impressive and the tomatoes especially delicious in homemade spaghetti sauce.
This year I happily picked up some blue zinnia flower seeds for my oldest daughter, who loves blue. (More on that in my blog post on trying to grow blue zinnias.)
Ever since, I’ve eagerly added more and more seeds to my Etsy favorites list. (You can peep my Etsy favorites list here!)
Now, tell me you don’t immediately fall in love with some of these blooms?!
By the way, if you’d like to keep track of flowers and Etsy seeds, you may wish to create your own Etsy favorites list!

Are Etsy seeds good for planting?
You can buy many different types of seeds on Etsy. I’ve had a great experience growing Roma tomatoes from seeds I bought on Etsy. Check the reviews on the seeds and seller you’re considering for a little insight. Many legit gardeners and farms offer seeds, bulbs, and live plants on Etsy. Meanwhile, the blue zinnia seeds I purchased – while still beautiful flowers – were anything but blue. As with any purchase, your mileage may vary.
Etsy Favorites List Flowers
It’s impossible to rank these favorite Etsy flowers, so I’m going to list them in no particular order. Shout at me in the comments and let me know which ones are your favorites!
(Or better yet, which ones you want to grow together! I’m always looking for likeminded gardeners to encourage my seed buying habits!)
If you’ve only grown traditional zinnias to date, like the California Giants mix or others from the seed racks, prepare to have your mind blown! (All Zinnias are beautiful, yes, but bear with me!)
I’m big on blends and ombre tones in our flower gardens, so I found myself instantly captivated by the Queen Lime Series of Zinnias –Queen Lime Orange, Queen Red Lime, and Queen Lime Blush. You can find them all at Etsy!
By the way – I love the blue zinnia seeds I bought on Etsy as well, and can’t wait to enjoy the first blooms. You can watch our progress growing blue zinnias from Etsy here!
COPPER AMETHYST AFRICAN DAISIES
I am a complete sucker for pink and orange flower color combinations! Now you know and will see the trend in some of my posts. I am obsessed with these Copper Amethyst African Daisies!
The purple, pink and orange hues are just so incredible. It will be lovely to see these perennial coneflowers year after year.
I definitely should have moved them from my Etsy favorite list to my shopping cart. They are currently showing as sold out!
No matter, I will keep them on my Etsy wish list in case they come back in stock. Also, I noticed that Etsy will recommend new items when the one you’ve favorited is unavailable. Sweet!
RAINBOW MARCELLA CONEFLOWER
Also following my pink and orange craze, these Rainbow Marcella Coneflowers offer a brilliant burst of color that I’m convinced I need in my life.
(I also love the Sunseeker Rainbow Echinacea, which I’m hoping shows up on Etsy sometime soon!)
A bright pink center blends beautifully into fully orange petals in a picture-perfect flower. These echinacea look like they’re absolutely made for a summertime vase on your kitchen table.
ZULU PRINCE DAISY
I’m pretty sure the Zulu Prince Daisies were the darling of social media last year, although many gardeners mistook them for white sunflowers.
I can only imagine the splendor of a small hand-tied bouquet of these gracing an understated glass or vase in the kitchen, too.
KING TUT BLUE SWEET PEA
Exotic and seemingly rare, I want this King Tut Blue Sweet Pea purely for its brilliant blue color. (Hopefully #nofilter!)
The hot pink coloring at the center sells me on its magnificence. After all, it’s got both my daughters’ favorite colors in one single blossom. (Yeah, I might’ve sold myself on this one. It’s only a matter of time.)
FOUR O’CLOCK SALMON SUNSET
I am so drawn by the coral, pinkish orange hues of the Salmon Sunset Four O’clocks!
These flowers look so tropical and add such a fun vibe to the garden. We grew four o’clock flowers for the first time last summer. Our daughters loved collecting the tiny hand-grenade shaped seeds.
This year we’ve lucked into a seed swap treasure – pink and yellow four o’clock flowers. It would be so exciting to expand our seed collection even further.
We loved waiting for our four o’clock flowers to bloom last year, so it would be just lovely to try some new ones with such pretty colors.
ITALIAN WHITE SUNFLOWERS
Who can resist flowers that whisper purity and grace? I love the gently, calming look of these stunning Italian white sunflowers.
The fact that they’re Italian is icing on the cake for me – I can already picture them in my kitchen as I’m whipping up some homemade gravy.
The majority of the sunflowers we’ve grown have been yellow, so it would be delightful to grow white sunflowers as well!
Stephanotis / Madagascar Jasmine
We had this lovely white star-shaped flower in our wedding boutonnieres and prominently in my wedding bouquet.
While available in seeds, I would likely purchase the rooted Stephanotis vine for old time’s sake.
I actually grew it for several years from a clipping I bought on eBay before having kids.
It finally bloomed and then somehow the plant didn’t make it. I can’t recall what happened but I hope one day to redeem myself, as I truly loved this gorgeous jasmine plant.
The classic star shaped flowers of Plumeria are so perfect and satisfying in shape. The vibrant hues make these tropical beauties simply irresistible.
This flower reminds me of our honeymoon in Maui! I’m wishing I’d noticed some Plumeria seed pods all those years ago, but alas, I will have to settle for some retail therapy at some point.
(Maybe not this exact moment as my daughters are still young and keeping me so busy. I’ll save the tropicals for a pick-me-up when I need it most! Ah, but a girl can dream…)
BIRD OF PARADISE
Another flower of my heart, birds of paradise remind me of some of my favorite places in the world.
The blue and orange tones bring such a positive energy and the flower itself does indeed resemble a tropical bird.
I’ve had this one in my shopping cart a time or two and decided to wait until it’s *NOT* the beginning of our growing season to try these exotic blooms.
Final Thoughts: Etsy Favorite Flowers
I hope you enjoyed my Etsy Favorites List of flowers I simply must have in my garden one day. I’ll be dreaming of them until that day comes.
Scratch that! More than likely, I’ll be obsessing over each of these and trying to narrow down which of them to buy first. J What’s your vote?!
