Blephilia ciliata

Blephilia ciliata

Downy Wood Mint

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

A very showy species that blooms in mid summer, grows to around 12” tall and spreads to form a patch. They are adapted to dry to average soils in sunny and partially shaded locations, unappealing to deer and very popular with pollinators.

Please check out the Prairie Moon listing at the link above for more details and some really lovely photos.

The Online Plant Nursery will re-open for orders on Tuesday, May 17th

Pickups will begin the following week.

I will be offering plug sized plants for $1.25 each or 5 for $5. 

I'm in the process of adding species that I expect to offer this spring to the listings since they are starting to germinate and I'm starting to get an idea of which will be available in abundant quantities.

Since the list is much longer this year I've added several categories to help narrow down your options based on a variety of criteria.

For those who have already adopted seedlings, planting instructions can be found here.
