The girls and I hit our local nursery to continue the work I have been doing on our property. I absolutely love Earthscapes. They recently opened their doors to the public and it's a great place to get locally grown, native plants (and everything else you could ever want) but it's unlike any other nursery I am used to. You sign in, get a MAP of the place because it's huge (20 + greenhouses) and take a wagon and go hunting for your plants. They have every plant they grow on a list, with the greenhouse number and the row that each plant is in. And they sell big, healthy established plants for WAY LESS than the typical "Home Depot" type of places. I got 6 big plants for less than $40.
Love it, love it, love it!
Note: These plants took a ride in my trunk, so they look a little lopsided)
I broke down and bought a Russian Sage, even though it's not even native to this continent. It's non-invasive and just too lovely to pass up. And it smells good.
Little Bluestem. A sweet little guy who will hopefully take over a problem corner.
Swamp Milkweed. Thanks, Laura, for the seed offer! But I like instant gratification if I can get it. It's going in the marsh/pond thingy I have going, but not until I am happy with the shape and depth of the marsh.
