Wildflowers Sun to Semi Sun

 

 

Lilium canadense - Canada Lily    

These are quite rare and quite a find if you see one. Sorry I do not have a picture yet. It is somewhat similar to the Turk's Cap Lily in growth and growing conditions. Prefers moist soil, sum to semi-shade, the soil should be rich. It reaches about 3 to 5 feet tall and has yellow flowers in the summer. Note the flower color can vary from yellow to orange to red. The flowers to not fully reflex like the Turk's Cap, these open about half way or so. It does have the whorled leaves up the stem as the Turk's Cap does. This is a must have for the garden.

Sun/Semi, Moist Rich, Summer, 3-5' Tall, Spread 12", Zones 3-8

We are working on these but it will probably be 2 or 3 more years before our next crop is ready.

Lilium superbum  -  Turk’s Cap Lily



This is a tall lily often reaching 8 feet and can have 20 or more blooms. The blooms are orange with maroon spots, the petals curl back which allows the stamens and pistil to project out. A very pretty plant blooming in the summer. Prefers rich wet soil in a semi-shaded area. Plant the bulb 6-8 inches deep, this is where the ground is more consistently moist. This plant is a must for every garden. Very adaptable plant as far as soil and sun requirements. Best location is full sun and moist soil, however they will grow in the shade. In the sun they will get very tall and have 20 or so blooms per stalk, as you get more shade and/or drier soil they will stay much shorter and have less blooms, but still just as beautiful. By far one of our best sellers.

Lobelia cardinalis   -   Cardinal Flower


 

 

If you are looking to attract hummingbirds, this is the plant. It is a brilliant red color and they love it. It thrives best in wet soil, will tolerate slightly drier soils, but not too dry. The basal foliage will remain all winter, and should not be covered with leaves or mulch during the winter. A light cover of pine needles is alright, so the sun can get to the leaves.

A very attractive plant in the spring with its blue pea – like flowers. Does best in full sun but will tolerate some light shade. These clump up very nicely and should be spaced at least 20-24" apart. They do best in dry soils, if you live in an area that has a lot of snow be sure you plant these in a high spot, they will rot over winter if they stay wet. After a few years you will start to see little seedlings pop up around your garden. They will normally die back sometime during the summer months.

Pycnanthemum muticum – Mountain Mint

Silvery bracts highlight dense clusters of small pinkish white flowers from summer to early fall on this special native of the Mint (Mentha) family. It is a vigorous grower, but is not invasive as are many of the true mints.  The flowers are an extraordinarily good source of nectar for many types of pollinators. The leaves smell strongly of spearmint when they are crushed, and they contain pulegone, a natural mosquito repellant.  You can crush the leaves and rub them on your skin and mosquitos will stay away and not smell like store bought repellant.  Deer also stay away from this plant. When left to dry in the winter, it will add an interesting silvery touch to your winter scape.
