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

New to me, grown from seeds from Prairie Moon Nursery https://www.prairiemoon.com/desmodium-glutinosum-pointed-leaved-tick-trefoil-prairie-moon-nursery.html 

This summer blooming species is well adapted to deciduous woodlands and forests. Definitely a species I’d suggest giving a try in a partially shaded garden, where their airy sprays of summer blooms would likely show off nicely, while also filling a part of the growing season that often has a gap in blooms in shaded areas.

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