Our native yarrow is one of our most common prairie plants and can be found in both wet and dry prairies. It is quick to establish on restoration sites so is great to use for enhancement or on disturbed areas. This member of the carrot family attracts many different pollinators and beneficial insects making it an important habitat plant. It can have white to pink flowers, 1-2 ft.
Gorgeous sunflower! Multiple flowering stems provide spring blossoms. Found in upland prairies and rocky bald with our native Oregon White Oak. 2-3 ft tall. The seeds are a favorite of goldfinches returning from migration.
Bright yellow rosaceous flowers clustered in upper leaf axils, compound lobed leaves, 2-3 ft tall when in flower. Does very well in a garden setting often blooming again after deadheading. Native to wetlands, streambanks and woodland edges..
This perennial lupine has deep-lavender flowers and widely lobed leaves that are tinged with purple. It grows a variety of habitats in the west. In the Willamette Valley it can be found in dry prairies and foothills. It will tolerate some woodland edge shade.
Flowers are large and beautiful, fringed, bright yellow, and often with a magenta center. The foliage is aromatic (sweet), it flowers for an extended period (up to 2 mo.) but flowers close by mid-morning, 4-5 ft tall (in garden or without competition). The seed is a small sunflower seed that attracts many birds.
Another really great summer blooming umbel for the garden. A slender 2' perennial with delicate, grass-like leaves and several compound umbels of minute white flowers. Similar to the invasive Queen Anne's Lace but much more elegant. Best planted in tight clumps.
This checkermallow grows many upright stems to 4 ft. or more covered in showy white to pale pink flowers, May-June. When using in the garden, cut back after flowering to get more flowers. Forms large robust clumps and is an easy perennial. It has proven a winner on restoration sites establishing quickly and persisting over the long-haul. It is found in both wet and dry prairies. There are both early (May) and later (June-July) blooming forms of which we carry both. Host plant for Gray Hairstreak and nectar for: Fenders Blue, Taylor's Checkerspot, and Checkered Skipper.
