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).

Hydrophyllum virginianum, Virginia Waterleaf

Hydrophyllum virginianum 

Virginia Waterleaf

  • Average to high moisture soils 
  • Partial to full shade
  • 2’ Tall, 12” wide, spreading to form a patch if they are happy with their location 
  • Spring Blooms
  • Ontario native, thrives in Open Woodland and Forest ecosystems

I have had poor success when it comes to germination of this species in the past, but I’m giving it another try with seeds from Prairie Moon Nursery 

These are a woodland species, thriving in areas with consistently available moisture, where they can spread to form a dense patch.

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
