Plants

for 2017  

 

Gardening with NATIVE AMERICAN 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 milkweed, Joe Pye, goldenrod and others, we will be offering four new cultivars.  Purple Prairie Clover is a hardy to Zone 3 native with gorgeous purple and gold flowers and is impervious to heat and drought.  Dogtooth Daisy is a unique daisy-like yellow flower with distinctive tooth-like indentations at the ends of their petals and is Zone 3 hardy.  Royal Catchfly is a hummingbird favorite that has deep red flowers, a fantastic floral display and is Zone 4 hardy.  The fourth variety is Lavender Hyssop which is an excellent choice for open sunny areas.  This Zone 2 cultivar is a biennial that self-sows readily.

Many other varieties will be available at the Farm
