Zizia aptera, Heart-leaf Golden Alexanders

Zizia aptera

Heart-leaf Golden Alexanders

  • Full sun to light shade
  • Average to slightly dry soil
  • 24” tall, 12” wide
  • Spring Blooming
  • Ontario Native, Beginner Friendly, Very popular with pollinators 

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

On of the earlier to bloom perennials for meadow or open woodland settings, these are an important nectar source for many insects, these are also a host species for Black Swallowtail caterpillars.

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