Plants

for 2019  

 

 

Gardening with NATIVE PLANTS has a lot of advantages from both a practical and and environmental perspective.  Native plants are easier to grow and require less water than most non-native plants since they are adapted to the local environment.  Environmentally, native gardens help to preserve native flora and provide for the fauna that is threatened by invasive species and urban sprawl.  Native plants also provide for a good source of nectar and pollen for honey bees and other pollinators.

In addition to our current inventory of native plants such as butterfly weed, milkweed, Joe Pye, goldenrod, royal catchfly, purple prairie clover and others, we will be offering about twenty new cultivars. 

 Here are three examples of our new offerings:

Amsonia (Blue Star Flower) 'Blue Ice':  Vivid blooms and willow-shaped dark green foliage that turns a vivid gold in autumn.

Senna (Caesalpiniacese) Light green, locust-like pinnate leaves with vivid sweetpea flowers that develop into pretty seed pods.

Zizia (Apiaceae) This native has attractive glossy evergreen leaves shaped like tiny shovels.  Its lacy yellow umbels appear in late spring followed by purplish seed capsules. 

Many other varieties will be available at the Farm
