The Native Plant Store can Now be Found Here

  • This page will remain accessible as a library page until I have all the species moved to the new page and all the quirks worked out in the new software so it can function as a searchable library.
  • Please see the Using the Plant Library  page  for some tips on how to make the most of the information in this existing library to select species for creating a healthy native plant community suited to the conditions of your site.

New to me, grown from seeds from Prairie Moon Nursery 

A very showy native annual species that I’m going to try in a few spaces this year, including containers, to see how well they adapt to conditions outside of wetlands.

Please check out the Prairie Moon listing at the link above for more details.
