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.

* Lysimachia ciliata, Fringed Loosestrife

~Did not germinate for 2023~

Lysimachia ciliata

Fringed Loosestrife

  • Average to high moisture soils
  • Prefers full sun but will grow in partial to full shade
  • 24” to 36” tall, spreads to form a patch
  • Summer blooming
  • Native to Ontario, thrives in high moisture areas but will spread less quickly in dryer areas

New to me this year, grown from seeds from the Ottawa Wildflower Seed Library and Prairie Moon Nursery

A very show species that can form a dense groundcover in areas with sufficient moisture. Will also grow in partially shaded areas with average or even slightly dry conditions. Pair with other vigorous species, lime Monardas, Prairie Sundrops and Obedient plant.

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