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.

Still new to my gardens, grown from seeds sourced from Prairie Moon Nursery. 

One of the few tall grasses that actually prefers shade, these grow to 3' or more in height and thrive in woodland and forest settings.
