B1780 Texas Ebony Tree (Pithecellobium flexicaule)
Outside, this is an elegant, slow-growing tropical tree with fine-textured foliage and fragrant, dense, yellow flowers. It is a good plant for desert landscapes. It is also a very popular ornamental bonsai plant. 5 seeds $2.50
Although this is not the Ebony tree of magick (Dixspyros lotus), it has been included here as Mama believes that it can be substituted for it. Ebony is used to make healing and protection amulets. If you can get pure ebony, the wands made of this make wands that give you pure, unadulterated power.
Echinacea can be used with any type of spell as it's power in magick is to add strength and power to blends.

Yellow Evening Primrose (Oenathera biennis)
Scott Cunningham mentions this under "Yellow Evening Primrose" rather than just as "Evening Primrose" so I have included it in both under "Y" and here. Although used for medicinal purposes, this plant's only magickal use, according to Scott Cunningham, was by the Native Americans to ensure a good hunt.

This is an erect biennial herb which grows 3-6' tall. During the first year, it has a basal rosette of leaves and a hairy stem from which lance-shaped leaves grow. During the second year, it has showy, yellow, lemon-scented, 4-petalled flowers which are about 2" across and bloom only in diminished light or in the dark. An infusion of the plant has stimulating effect on the liver, spleen and digestive system. Has often been used to treat mental depression. 20 seeds $1.95

This is a lovely border plant that grows only to 12". It has silky, rose-colored blooms that deepen to a butter-yellow center. The flowers open in late evening to release soft fragrance. It would also make a wonderful centerpiece for a hanging basket. The magickal use given for this plant is for hunting as used by Native Americans, however, it is a delightful plant to tantalize the senses, which makes it a good plant for bringing happiness into the home. 20 seeds $1.95
