The Plant Store will re-open for sales the week of May 13th, 2024 for local pickup

  • 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.
  • I'm currently working on shifting the store part of this site over to more complex software that will allow for filtering by multiple plant traits and making wish lists of species you would like to order, so please bear with me when it comes to announcing the exact species offerings for 2024 (there will be lots, including some species not previously offered).

Chasmanthium latifolium, Northern Sea Oats

Chasmanthium latifolium

Broad-leaved Chasmanthium or Northern Sea Oats

  • Average to moderately high moisture soils
  • Best in part shade but will tolerate full sun with sufficient moisture
  • 3’ tall, 1’ to 2’ spread
  • Summer blooming, seed heads into the fall
  • Native to Ontario, beginner friendly, open woodland forest and high moisture (but not flooded) ecosystems

New to me this year, grown from seeds from Prairie Moon Nursery 

A clump forming grass that can spread, mostly by seed, to form a large patch if space allows. Their wide bladed foliage, arching stems and dangling seeds create a string visual effect in semi-shaded gardens.

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