Now is the time of summer to see some of the native plants that send up unique and beautiful flower spikes. The dazzling Lead Plant is now in full bloom. There is also the graceful beauty of Culver’s Root, the rugged Hoary Vervain, and beautiful displays of Wild Lupine.
We now have a very good stock of most native plants in our greenhouses. It’s time to get the lead out and plant those pollinators.
