Includes 10 naturalizing species of native wildflowers that tend to be short-lived but a bit rambunctious in reseeding or spreading by roots plus 1 native grass species selected to provide constant and overlapping flowering for our valued pollinators in a sun-part sun, dry-moist "cottage garden". For me a "cottage garden" is one where the gardener allows the plants to find their own niches with some gentle editing in spring to eliminate any rogue reseeding or spreading.
Species to include:
(No substitutions requests please, though substitutions may be necessary if poor germination.)
Early Flowering: Prunella vulgaris ssp. lanceolata (Lance Self-Heal), Tradescantia ohiensis (Ohio Spiderwort) Erigeron pulchellus (Robin's Plantain).
Mid-Season Flowering: Pycnanthemum tenufolium (Slender Mountain Mint), Asclepias syriaca (Common Milkweed) to be substituted with Eutrochium maculatum (Spotted Joe Pye-Weed) due to poor germination, Eupatorium perfoliatum (Boneset), Monarda fistulosa (Wild Bergamot).
