  • 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.

  • Full sun to light shade
  • 60” tall, 18” to 24” wide

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

This tall, narrow species is a classic in many prairie settings. They are very showy and thrive in mixed meadows and garden settings alongside prairie grasses, Wild Bergamot and Anise Hyssop as well as various Aster, Goldenrod and Liatris species.
