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 *

* Liatris cylindracea, Slender Blazing Star 

~These aren't thriving. If they pick up I'll include them in the fall sale~

Liatris cylindracea

Slender Blazing Star 

  • Full Sun
  • Average to dry soil
  • 12" to 16" tall, 6" to 10" wide
  • Summer blooms 
  • Native to Ontario, Garden and Dry Meadow settings

Grown from seeds from Prairie Moon Nursery 

The smallest of the Liatris species I’ve planted, this species is the least capable of coping with competition but is very well suited to dry, low nutrient soils and hot, sunny locations. Would do well along side Prairie Smoke, Lance Leaf Coreopsis and Pearly Everlasting. 

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
