About Us

about me

We specialize in nursery propagated prairie, woodland and wetland forbs and grasses of Western IL/Eastern IA. Plants are available in 4 1/2" Extra Deep and #1 Ct. (gallon) pots. We do not sell seed or plugs, but in spring do offer 2.25" sq. and 3 1/2" sq. pots for purchase. We offer a full line of plants suitable for Rain Gardens and Bioswales. All plants offered for sale are also grown in our gardens and offer us valuable hands-on experience in their care and growth habits.
