Plants arrive

I ordered 1,200 plants for the garden at Lucas House from Grow Wild! native plant nursery in Omemee , Ontario.

They came as plugs – so quite small. But they will grow quickly and within two years will densely cover the ground. Buying plugs is more cost-effective. They’re much cheaper than bigger plants, but soon catch up with their more mature siblings.

Here’s the plant list

40 Asclepias incarnata (Swamp milkweed)

40 Eutrochium maculatum (Spotted joe-pye weed)

80 Echinacea pallida (Pale purple coneflower)

80 Coreopsis lanceolata (Lance-leaf coreopsis)

70 Symphyotrichum cordifolium (Heart-leaf aster)

60 Pycnanthemum tenuifolium (Slender mountain mint)

80 Aquilegia canadensi (Wild columbine)

80 Rudbeckia hirta (Black-eyed Susan)

70 Penstemon hirsutus (Hairy beardtonge)

600 Schizachyrium scoparium (Little bluestem)
