for 2018  

 

 

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 butterfly weed, milkweed, Joe Pye, goldenrod, royal catchfly, purple prairie clover and others, we will be offering three new cultivars.  Cardinal Flower - The flaming red wands of the Cardinal Flower can bloom for a month or longer.  This is a nectar source for hummingbirds and swallowtail butterflies.  Great Blue Lobelia - Covered in deep blue flowers in late summer and early fll and it too attracts hummingbirds.  Yellow Coneflower - grows in almost any soil.  This striking prairie flower is a cornucopia of bright yellow flowers in the heat of mid-summer.

Many other varieties will be available at the Farm
