The charm and appeal of this prairie planting comes from the glowing beauty of its flowers and from the grace of its ornamental grasses. Planted in masses and drifts of color, rudbeckia, crocosmia, helenium, echinacea, eryngium create drama and impact. Blooming in succession over a long season, they are interplanted with stipa and calamagrostis for a naturalistic meadow effect. These grasses will provide a great show in fall after the flowers are long gone.
Fairly easy to recreate, this planting includes plants that are easy to grow and require low care. Most are deer, rabbit and drought tolerant.
A prairie garden that is attractive to humans but also to birds, butterflies, and other native wildlife too.
