Caltha palustris (Marsh marigold)Caltha palustris - Marsh marigold
Marsh marigold is related to the buttercup family and is native to marshes. It doesn’t look like a marigold and is not related to marigolds. It grows in full sun to part shade in shallow water or wet, boggy soils. Will bloom best in full sun but needs some shade in the heat of summer, in fact if it is too hot for it in the summer it may go dormant. The bright yellow blooms appear in spring on 12”-18” tall hollow stems. Flowers give way to seed pods which split open when ripe to send seeds flying out. No part of this plant should be eaten raw but the flower buds may be cooked and pickled in vinegar. Young leaves can be boiled and used as greens. Good for bog gardens or pond edges.

Fireweed (Epilobium angustifolium)Chamerion angustifolium      Fireweed

A tall grower reaching a height of 5-6 ft. with pinkish purple flowers, puts on quite a show in the summer months. Will grow in varied conditions, and will spread quite readily if left alone. Be sure to put this in a spot where it can spread and be free, spreads by underground runners. Seen in the wild where there have been recent fires, hence its common name. With all this said you would think that we would have ample supply. They are very difficult to grow from seed, sometime we have great success and other years we have none. We are doing more with root cuttings but these can also be difficult at times. Also they are very popular and as soon as we get some plants of salable size they are gone.

Clematis virginiana  -  Virgins Bower

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Unlike the hybrid Clematis with large blooms, these have an abundance of small white flowers in the late summer to fall. One of the more attractive features of this plant is the seeds which make a white fuzz all over the plant, and is showier than the blooms. Will spread quickly but can be controlled, give it something to climb on.

This plant is seen quite frequently across the U.S., has white flowers in the summer. The blooms are good to dry and use in flower arrangements. This plant is a biennial, which means it comes back from seed, so let the seedpod mature and drop before cutting them back so they can reseed themselves.

Has a taproot, which enables it to tolerate drought conditions very well, and will do well in poor soils. Much different than the purpurea variety in that the petals are very narrow as are the leaves on the stem. It also can get quite tall over time, around 4 feet.

Echinacea tennesseensis  - Tennessee Coneflower



This U.S. native plant was on the Federal Endangered Species List but has been recently removed due to recovery. It is similar to E. purpurea except it is somewhat less vigorous and smaller,  and the dark green linear leaves are more narrow.  Its slightly upturned rose-purple rays give the flower a “cup-like” appearance. It is a great bloomer and will add a special touch to your garden.

Eryngium yuccifolium   Rattlesnake Master, Button Snakeroot

The white flowers appear in the summer. A very unique and different looking plant in every aspect from the foliage to the thistle like bloom and then with the seed pod. As suggested by the botanical name the foliage is basal and somewhat resembles that of a Yucca plant. The common name “Rattlesnake Master” is believed to come from the tales recounted by 18th Century Indian trader James Adair in which Native Americans chewed the root of this plant, blew it on their hands, and then proceeded to handle rattlesnakes with no harm. Of course there is no scientific evidence to support this at this time. This was a popular herb with the Native Americans who also used it for a number of other medicinal uses such as: expelling worms, to induce vomiting, to treat liver troubles, etc.

Eutrochium maculatum - Spotted Joe Pye Weed

http://www.prairienursery.com/_assets/products/1398/product-3044.jpg
This herbaceous perennial is easily grown in medium to wet soils in full sun and prefers moist, humus soils that do not dry out. They are sometimes called Spotted Joe Pye Weed which refers to the stems, not the leaves, which are sometimes purple and sometimes green with purple spots. These plants can grow 4-7 feet tall on branched stems with 8” long medium green leaves, and the flowers are showy and fragrant, rose to deep purple from mid-summer to early fall. Butterflies are attracted to these wildflowers and they are deer resistant. Excellent for native plant gardens, water margins and back borders with a reputation for low maintenance.
