Oops, I usually catch when they're not in the US. I think most restrictions are about shipping into Australia, so there's still a chance. If they can't, maybe they have an idea for other suppliers.

After going through several pages of results under the latin name I come across this company https://www.4seasonsseeds.com.au/epages/4seasons.sf/en_AU/?ObjectPath=/Shops/4seasons_seeds/Products/V-AM03/SubProducts/V-AM03-0001 But they don't show any pictures with the seed head. I can't tell the difference between huauzontle and lambs quarters from photos. The two plants are very closely related. Before ordering from them I'd want to confirm it was the kind grown for the flower heads.

Of course, they're also an Australian company. For a plant that originated in a different hemisphere it's amazing that they seem to be the only suppliers. I'm gonna try fumbling through a Spanish language search now.

That did it. Search huauzontle semillas and a lot of vendors pop up. I'm sorry I'm not bilingual. However it is reassuring to see that they are out there. Give it a little more time and someone more helpful will probably see this thread. Sorry I didn't find a convenient site.

cassie, ty for all your help. i do speak some spanish so i will try the link you found. who knew it could be so hard to find these seeds. i saw the photos from 4 season seeds too and i also thought it was just lambs quarter which i have growing wild in one section of our farm. i will let you know if i can buy them off the site you gave me. deb:)
 
No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better. This time, do it with this tiny ad:
