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.

Silene virginica, Fire Pink

~No germination in 2024~

Silene virginica

Fire Pink

  • Dappled shade or planted among taller species in a full sun setting
  • Average to dry soils
  • 24” tall
  • Early to mid summer blooms
  • Ontario Native. Best in dryish meadows and woodland margins

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

A brightly coloured flower for dry savannahs or woodland margins. Attractive to hummingbirds. Can be short lived but will self seed if happy with their location 

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