The Native Plant Store can Now be Found Here

  • This page will remain accessible as a library page until I have all the species moved to the new page and all the quirks worked out in the new software so it can function as a searchable library.
  • Please see the Using the Plant Library  page  for some tips on how to make the most of the information in this existing library to select species for creating a healthy native plant community suited to the conditions of your site.

New to me, grown from seeds from Prairie Moon Nursery 

This upright legume family species has showy pink blooms in mid to late summer and is said to grow best in partial shade. They are a popular pollinator food source and some birds eat their seeds.

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