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

Potentilla supina, Bushy Cinquefoil

Potentilla supina (also known as Potentilla paradoxa)

Bushy Cinquefoil

  • Annual or Biennial
  • Prefers sandy soils with plenty of available moisture (shorelines) 
  • Grows 4” to 12” tall and spreads horizontally 12” to 30”
  • Summer blooming
  • Native to Ontario, May not adapt well to garden conditions.

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

This is a low growing, spreading species that is most likely to be found on beaches and shorelines. I’m curious to find out how adaptable they are to garden and container settings as part so I though I’d give them a try.

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
