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.

Tephrosia virginiana, Virginia Goat's Rue 

~After two failed attempts at germination, I'm no longer trying to offer this species~

Tephrosia virginiana

Virginia Goat's Rue 

  • Slightly dry to very dry sandy soils, including the sandy silt found on a lot of the Canadian Shield. i.e., Cottage Country soils
  • Full sun to light shade
  • 12” tall, 12” to 24” wide 
  • Early Summer Blooms
  • Ontario Native, Thriving in Dry Meadow and Open Woodland ecosystems, Nitrogen Fixing 

New to me, grown from seeds from Prairie Moon Nursery 

This relatively low growing member of the Legume family has very eye-catching blooms in the early summer. Doesn’t transplant well once established due to their deep, drought resistant root system.

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
