At this time of the season we are working on 2022 inventory, firming up spring ordering from our growers and then the website. Our plan is to return the shopping cart in Feb/Mar for 6-8 weeks so you can reserve your plants to pickup when they are ready as well as your gardens in May/June. Please note we will not be adding all the plants available - so always way more to see when you drop by. Season 25 tentative Hours: Thursday to Sunday 10-4 early May to June 29th, 2022

Prairie Smoke

$5.95

Native On special for limited time only – watch for shopping cart to return in early spring 2022 to order yours for next season,
Geum triflorum
   Also known as Old Man’s Whiskers
This perennial wildflower is an attractive little plant that should be cultivated more often. The reddish flowers remain attractive for 2-3 months during both the blooming period and afterwards as the achenes develop. It is an easy plant to identify because no other Geum sp. (Avens) within develops achenes with long feathery tails. 
The ‘smoke’ is when setting seed, large stands of the plant create a gauzy effect that resembles smoke hovering close to the ground.  Blooming in spring to early summer, Prairie Smoke will spread slowly from its roots in well-drained, dry to wet soils.  Ours bloom first year due to their age/size. 

Attract butterflies, Bees and Hummingbirds
