SUMMER PRAIRIE TOUR
On this tour, we get to see the prairie in all its glory! With over 40 different native varieties of healthy plants, this prairie continues to expand and surprise all of us as we find more native plants growing in places where they were never planted. The prairie is now expanding itself on its own. Today we will see many varieties including Compass Plant, False Sunflower, Grey Headed Coneflower, Bergamot, Weeping Daisies, Blue Vervain, Rosinweed, Echinacea, Butterfly Weed, Prairie Dock, Mullein, Ironweed, Culver’s Root, Rattlesnake Master, Penstemon, Lead Plant, Common Milkweed and invasive plants such as Chickery, Queen Anne's Lace, thistles, Knapweed, Curly Dock and a very invasive Butter & Egg plant. It truly has been a lush and beautiful year! We hope you’ll take time to visit it in person.
