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 *

* Hydrophyllum appendiculatum, Great Waterleaf

~I still haven't succeeded in providing these with the conditions they require for germination so they won't be available for 2023~

Hydrophyllum appendiculatum 

Great Waterleaf

  • Biennial
  • Average soils 
  • Partial to full shade
  • 2’ tall, 2’ wide 
  • Spring Blooms
  • Ontario native, Thrives in Open Woodland and Forest ecosystems

New to me, grown from seeds from Prairie Moon Nursery 

These are a very showy, biennial species, forming a green rosette of leaves the first year and then blooming and setting seed the following spring.

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
