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.

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.
