Hierocloƫ odorata


This grass is considered sacred and used in Native American ceremonies; braided and burned as a smudge to purify body and soul. The glossy leaves have a pleasant vanilla fragrance. Requires a moist rich soil in full sun. Creeps slowly by rhizomes to form a patch.

Elymus virginicus


Similar to Canada Wild Rye, this graceful grass grows in full sun or moderate shade. Fast-growing, it is excellent for stabilizing wooded hillsides and ravines. Tolerant of moisture, it is an ideal choice for planting along woodland streams and floodplains.

Mertensia virginica


The distinctive blue-pink flowers appear soon after the snows of winter are gone. Long-lived, it expands slowly to form beautiful clumps that return year after year.
