The sizes of plants sold are not young transplants, but field grown plants ready to go into the landscape: the same plants that are sold directly at the nursery. We do not pot all plants in gallon size containers, but pot them in the correct size container for the root system and its required growing space.

All are native. Wildflowers to us are the plants we nurture or allow to reseed in areas where we can walk in early Spring to Fall and see lovely bloom. Some bloom long enough to be used in perennial borders, ponds or as ground covers, and are so listed in those sections of this catalog. Others to us are weeds and are pulled out constantly, such as Queen Anne's Lace, Chicory, and Goldenrod. Our native ferns are listed in the Fern section. At the nursery the wild flowers are blooming size plants, sold potted. Mail orders are also shipped potted and growing unless dormant. If shipped in their dormant state, plant immediately.  Dor. means plant goes dormant for summer. We do collect seed from our plants, and make it available on some varieties.
