Try out some of our new native perennial varieties for 2021! We've trialed these stand out plants in our own gardens and in containers before offering them for sale...and they're awesome!
These new native perennials will be available in quarts and/or gallons, and some will be available early in the spring season. They are:
Arisaema triphyllum or Jack in the Pulpit
~A lovely spring ephemeral that comes up early, blooms, and then goes dormant for the remainder of the year. Highly sought after by creative designers, homeowners and native plant professionals, Arisaema does best in damp woodland settings with mostly shade.
Callirhoe involucrata or Winecups
~Callirhoe is a plant for tough,rugged conditions, preferring a dry full sun location. Winecups grow low to the ground and produce a long tap root, but the lovely magenta flowers pop up throughout the foliage as it grows.
Geum triflorum or Prairie Smoke
~This geum doesn't have an exciting flower - the real magic happens afterwards! The fluffy, pinkish purple seedhead is the best feature of this funky plant. As the common name implies, the plants do best in native prairie settings, so full sun, medium to dry soils.
Phacelia bipinnatifida or Fern leaf Phacelia
~A lovely purple blue flower is produced in spring by this biennial that readily self seeds. Phacelia does best in part sun/shade, and slightly moist soil, although it's pretty tolerant of most conditions.
Carex rosea or Rosy Sedge
~Carex rosea was frequently requested by our customers because it tends to spread, and can tolerate a wide range of conditions - sun, shade, wet and dry (including the tough to fill spots in dry shade!). The common name comes from the small reddish tips on the seedheads it produces in spring.
Carex socialis or Social Sedge
~Social Sedge is a short, fine textured grass that does best in part sun to shade with moist to wet soils. The plant spreads through rhizomes to form large colonies in the right locations.
