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.

  • Partial to full shade
  • Average to woodland soils, moderate moisture
  • 24” tall, 18” to 24” wide

New to me this year, grown from seeds from Prairie Moon Nursery 

A woodland plant for partially shaded locations that blooms in mid summer to mid fall.

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
