Physostegia virginiana

The Obediant Plant (Physostegia virginiana) makes a great groundcover for damp soils. This showy member of the mint family thrives in moist soil and creeps rapidly by rhizomes to keep weeds at bay. An excellent groundcover for wet areas that are difficult to mow, plant it with Great Blue Lobelia for a great late summer color combination.

Solidago ohioensis

Ohio Goldenrod (Solidago ohioensis) is the largest of the goldenrod flowers. The compact form misrepresents the exuberant late season floral display. The foliage is superb, with lush, lance-like leaves radiating out from the base. Excellent for moist clay, it also thrives in good garden soil.

Tradescantia ohiensis

The delightful deep blue flowers of Ohio Spiderwort bloom for an extended period in late spring and early summer. Tradescantia ohiensis can be planted with Smooth Penstemon for a fantastic color combination. Spiderworts go dormant in summer, so plant them with other later-blooming prairie flowers and grasses.

Solidago nemoralis

This plant is a rhizomatous, upright perennial of the sunflower family that typically grows to a very compact 6” to 24” tall. It is one of the smallest of the many species of goldenrod.
