This Kit Includes

  • Ilex vomitoria ‘Nana’ (Dwarf Yaupon holly) This small, evergreen northeast native will provide deep green structure to your summer or winter garden. Naturally sited in wetland conditions, it prefers some respite from the hottest of conditions, but it’s too tender to grow north of zone 7. Birds can nest in its branches and will be attracted to the fruit if a male pollinator is present to fertilize. This plant is both flammable and a bit toxic, as noted in its specific epithet. more info
  • Calamagrostis x acutiflora ‘Karl Foerster’ (Karl Foerster Feather Reed Grass) This cool-season grass is early to arrive in spring and tolerant of medium to wet soils in full sun. Known for its erect, columnar form, this grass works well in large groupings and can provide soft screening for seated areas in summer. Its feathery seed heads can be attractive to birds.
  • Muhlenbergia capillaris (Pink muhly grass) Native to the western and central United States, this fuzzy, pink grass is tolerant of droughty conditions, salt, and poor soils but also at home in the garden collection. Very low-maintenance, its inflorescence will provide months of color, even into winter. Additionally, this grass is known to provide cover for small birds and to attract beneficial ladybird beetles (Coccinella spp.) to the garden. more info
  • Juniperus horizontalis ‘Wiltonii’ (Blue Rug juniper) Native to much of the US, this creeping groundcover forms a dense, evergreen mat over infertile soils and rocky outcroppings. Tolerant of low water situations, this plant is a great choice for rock gardens.
  • Echinacea purpurea ‘PowWow White’ (PowWow® White Coneflower) This prairie-borne nativar is a compact, early bloomer that will bring lovely, white blooms to your front border. Attractive to bees and butterflies in flower, they will swarm to gather its nectar and pollen. This Echinacea is also host to the silvery checkerspot butterfly (Chlosyne nycteis), a ‘Species of Special Concern’ in several northeast states. Additionally, its seeds feed goldfinches and other small birds. more info
