The Native Plant Store is Now Open Here

  • This page will remain accessible as a library page until I have all 200+ species profiles added to the new store software
  • 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.

Galium boreale, Northern Bedstraw 

Galium boreale 

Northern Bedstraw 

  • Average to Slightly Wet or Slightly Dry Soils
  • Full Sun to Part Shade
  • 24” tall, 12” to 18” spacing
  • Mid Summer Blooms 
  • Ontario Native, Thrives in Meadow and Open Woodland Ecosystems

Grown from seeds sourced from Prairie Moon Nursery. 

For full to part sun areas, this Galium can spread quickly so is likely better suited to meadows or dense pollinator plantings than gardens. Where their exhuberance won't overwhelm, they add beautiful frothy blooms to grasslands and mixed meadows.

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

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
