The Plant store is now closed for orders.

  • I'm planning on one last round of sales toward the end of September of plants that I'll be potting up from a nursery bed I planted in the fall of 2022. I'll post the details and the time once I have the plants ready to go
  • Please see the Using the Plant Library  page  for some tips on how to make the most of the information here to select species for creating a healthy native plant community suited to the conditions of your site.
  • Please see the Plant Nursery for a photo of the different sizes/prices on offer and for information on the sizing of these seedlings and the details of the sale
  • Species that were not seeded, didn’t germinate or that are sold out are marked with an asterisk *

* Bidens cernua, Nodding Beggarticks

~Sold out for 2023~

Bidens cernua

Nodding Beggarticks

  • Annual
  • Wet to moderately wet soils 
  • Full Sun
  • 36” tall, 18” to 24” wide
  • Mid summer to fall blooming
  • Ontario Native Species, Annual, High moisture ecosystems. 

Still new to me, grown from seeds from the Ottawa Wildflower Seed Library

A fairly showy member of the Biddens family, I suspect that these will adapt reasonably to growing in containers, so I’m going to give them a try this summer. I’ll also tuck a few into a seasonally flooded drainage ditch area to see how they do there.

Species that were not sown / aren't being sown for 2023 are marked with an * 
Species that are native to this continent, but not historically native to Ontario are marked with a ~ 
While it rarely comes up, I do reserve the right to limit plant quantities, mostly to help ensure that as many native plant gardens as possible become a reality
