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 *

* Gentianopsis crinita, Greater Fringed Gentian

~These are ittsy bitsy, teensy tiny. Please see the seedling photo. They are in a standard 200 cell tray (200 plants in a standard 10" x 20" tray) so are smaller than the seedlings that I generally offer but they took all summer to grow to this size and I'm offering for those who would like to try them~

Gentianopsis crinita

Greater Fringed Gentian

  • Annual, Biennial or very short lived Perennial
  • High moisture to wet soils
  • Full sun
  • 12” tall, 4” to 6” wide
  • Lat summer to fall blooms
  • Native to Ontario, Short lived, Best in wet meadows

New to me this year, grown from seeds from Ottawa Wildflower Seed and Prairie Moon Nursery 

Very showy but reportedly particular about location, preferring consistently moist soil conditions. Short lived but known to reseed if they like their growing conditions.

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
