Eriophyllum lanatum var. leucophyllum (Oregon Sunshine)
Provides a very long-lived showing of golden daisies to the mid-spring and summer landscape. The wooly leaves form a dense, nearly evergreen mat 1-2' tall. It is excellent as a border perennial or a groundcover and is one of the matrix species in the Willamette Valley prairies. Nectar species for Fenders Blue Butterfly and Field Cresent.
Potentilla gracilis (Slender or Graceful Cinquefoil)
Just as the common name says, this plant produces a graceful 1' mound of lacy fretted palmate foliage with sunshine yellow flowers. In western Oregon, it is a key species in both our wet and dry prairies and its long bloom-time in June attracts numerous native pollinators.
Very showy, large yellow flowers (sunflower family), large expressive leaves (aka "mule's ears"). The seeds are large and attract goldfinches at the height of summer. Nectar species for Field Cresent butterflies.
