This seed has players immediately surrounded by a roofed forest and a large stone and gravel plateau. While the nearby mountains are small, the almost flat stone nearby makes for a wonderful spot for a town beneath a castle.

Just a short walk away from spawn is a huge sloped mountain range entirely cut off by a river all around and an ocean behind. With a nearby village, players can find a blacksmith as well as a house containing bookshelves, and another with three emeralds.

Directly at spawn, players find themselves along a river with a mountain range in front and a village behind. While the latter is lackluster in its loot, players will find a lake overlooked by a peculiar divot in the mountain further down the river. Almost perfectly rectangular, this divot would be a key place for a mountain keep.

Just north of spawn, players can find an acacia village, a short walk away. Inside of this village is a house with bookshelves. Further north is a large, jutting acacia mountain with a landscape perfect for terraforming.

Snow-on-the-Mountain Seeds (Euphorbia marginata)

On July 28th, 1806, William Clark, co-captain of the Lewis and Clark Expedition, collected this curious plant while exploring Montana’s Yellowstone River. Plant hunter and botanist Frederick Pursh called it a “very handsome species” in his Flora Americae Septentrionalis (1813), which described many plants collected by Lewis and Clark. Snow-on-the-Mountain is distinguished by white-edged and veined upper leaves, is now popular in cutting gardens. Snow on the mountain tolerates deer, drought, and poor soils. Recorded and/or collected by Lewis and Clark on their expedition.

Direct sow seeds outdoors after the last spring frost. Soak seeds in warm water for eight hours before sowing to enhance germination. Approximately 15 Snow-on-the-Mountain seeds per packet.
