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).

Lysimachia ciliata, Fringed Loosestrife

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.

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
