Baptisia 'American Goldfinch'
American Goldfinch False Indigo
$15.00 $19.50

The False Indigo species (Baptisia) features beautiful compact bluish green leaves arranged in groups of three. Like many members in the legume family, they are nitrogen fixing plants which means they produce their own nitrogen in the soil through a symbiotic relationship with bacteria. The flowers bloom above the foliage normally in April and May. Common baptisia flower colors include white, purple, lavender, yellow, and pink as well as uncommon colors ranging from deep purple to maroon and even coppery orange. Considered a great North American native three season plant, the foliage always emerges very attractive followed by flowers that do not need deadheading. Foliage generally lasts pretty nice through hot summers and into fall turning black with first freeze. Seed pods also turn charcoal black when ripe and have considerable ornamental interest and useful in dried flower arrangements. At some point in the fall, it can be cut down early for a clean look or left for winter interest. Baptisia generally do well in droughty clay soils in full to part sun. There is only one pest that may create problems called the Genista Broom Moth. It may occur in Kansas when weather conditions are consistently dry and over 95 degrees F. It is treatable if you act fast but if not, it only destroys the foliage late in the season and does not kill the plant. Baptisia has several enormous spreading taproots which store water and energy and can make transplanting difficult. Plantings look good as specimen or in small groups; and it’s ok even preferable if they grow together and touch other plants. That helps eliminate available sunlight and discourages weeds. It is hard to picture a native plant garden or any perennial garden without Baptisia. Considered a once “it’s there, it’s always there” plant. Baptisia 'American Goldfinch' >>>>>>>Gorgeous, golden yellow flower spikes rise up above its wide habit. This is one of the most floriferous Baptisia we offer, producing loads of brightly colored spikes for many weeks. After the blooming season, 'American Goldfinch' produces attractive round seed pods in the fall. This is the perfect specimen for filling in a large space in your garden or for mass plantings in landscapes. >>>>> This extremely long-lived perennial could be used instead of a shrub in landscape settings, with minimal care required to thrive year after year.

It is hard to picture a native plant garden or any perennial garden without Baptisia. Considered a once “it’s there, it’s always there” plant. Many different cultivars and flower colors are available.

Baptisia sphaerocarpa 'Screaming Yellow'
Screaming Yellow False Indigo
$15.00 $19.50

The False Indigo (Baptisia species) features beautiful compact bluish green leaves arranged in groups of three. Like many members in the legume family, they are nitrogen fixing plants which means they produce their own nitrogen in the soil through a symbiotic relationship with bacteria. The flowers bloom above the foliage normally in April and May. Common baptisia flower colors include white, purple, lavender, yellow, and pink as well as uncommon colors ranging from deep purple to maroon and even coppery orange. Considered a great North American native three season plant, the foliage always emerges very attractive followed by flowers that do not need deadheading. Foliage generally lasts pretty nice through hot summers and into fall turning black with first freeze. Seed pods also turn charcoal black when ripe and have considerable ornamental interest and useful in dried flower arrangements. At some point in the fall, it can be cut down early for a clean look or left for winter interest. Baptisia generally do well in droughty clay soils in full to part sun. There is only one pest that may create problems called the Genista Broom Moth. It may occur in Kansas when weather conditions are consistently dry and over 95 degrees F. It is treatable if you act fast but if not, it only destroys the foliage late in the season and does not kill the plant.

It is hard to picture a native plant garden or any perennial garden without Baptisia. Considered a once “it’s there, it’s always there” long lived plant. Baptisia x variicolor 'Twilite Prairieblues' is a cross between B. australis, a blue flowering variety, and B. sphaerocarpa, a yellow flowering variety. The result is pea-like violet-purple and maroon flowers with dramatic yellow keels and foliage that is more on the blue-green spectrum. In Kansas we have noticed a slightly increased incidence of Genista Broom Moth with this cultivar, but overall vigorousness offsets any permanent damage to the plant. This extremely long-lived perennial could be used instead of a shrub in landscape settings, with minimal care required to thrive year after year.

Beaucarnea recurvata
Ponytail Palm / Elephant's foot (Tropical)
$40.00 $52.00

Ponytail Palm / Elephant's Foot (Beaucarnea recurvata) has a pronounced swollen caudex (trunk) and attractive green grass-like curved foliage making an excellent architectural statement. Ponytail Palm (not a true palm) is native to low deciduous forests and semi-desert areas of southeastern Mexico, Belize and Guatemala where it typically grows to as much as 30' tall. It is best used as a houseplant or summer patio plant in Kansas. Place in full sun to part sun with optional extra watering including that which comes from rainfall. Repotting may or may not be needed depending on how large you want the plant to grow; plants can continue to grow taller and tolerate extremely root-bound pots but may need wind bracing. in Potted plants are hardy to at least 25 degrees F for a short time if kept dry so you are ok if you miss the first light frost. Do not allow the pot with rootball to freeze solid though. Move into a cold garage, basement, or bright window over the winter with occasional to no watering. Larger ponytail palms can survive 6-8 months without water in the winter if allowed to have a healthy outdoor growing season. As a winter house plant, it will look presentable all winter long with just a couple waterings.(also to prevent lanky winter growth) As a permanent house plant, provide bright light and allow the soil to dry between waterings for many years (even decades) of carefree enjoyment. Potted plants grow very slow and are very low maintenance needing only old leaves trimmed once per year. Mealy bugs can be a problem with permanent indoor house plants but will go away if grown outside during the summer or never introduced in the first place. Either way, sharp blasts of hose water and/or horticultural oil spray will mostly eliminate this (only) pest problem.

Begonia grandis
Hardy Begonia
$20.00 $26.00

Hardy Begonia (Begonia grandis) is planted for its attractive green foliage with reddish stems along with its breathtaking summer/fall pink flower display. It is a tuberous-rooted, clump-forming perennial that typically forms a bushy mound of foliage to 2’ tall on branching stems. Foliage maintains well all season provided that certain cultural conditions are met. Native to forests with humusy, medium to wet, well-drained soil in part shade to full shade, it needs constantly moist soil rich in organic matter but avoid clay. Good late summer flowering shade plant which mixes well with hostas and ferns in the shade garden. Generally this plant declines after a few years of Kansas climate but worth a try in perfect soils in well-tended shade gardens. If low temperatures hit -10 degrees F, it may kill an un-mulched plant; protect any zone 6 perennial with thick layer of mulch. An large established grouping exists at OSU Botanical Gardens in Stillwater, OK. This grouping has proven hardy with 2-3" of mulch and lows down to -14 degrees F on Feb 16th, 2021. The longevity of this cold blast was also impressive: 12 days on a row with highs below 32 degrees F, 7 nights of lows in the single digits and negatives and 48-60 hours of 5 degrees F and mostly lower. A hard ground freeze was inevitable with no damage to tubers.

Bignonia capreolata
Evergreen Cross Vine

Crossvine (Bignonia capreolata) is a highly ornamented evergreen vine native to the southeast west to Oklahoma and Texas. Fantastic blooms completely cover the plant and occur on old wood in the late spring for about 3-5 weeks then sporadically during the summer. Flowers are trumpet-shaped, orange and red with yellow throats. Although in the same family as trumpet vine (campus radicans), crossvine is not invasive. Plant crossvine on fences or pergolas where you want good coverage but not anything sprawling too far away from the structure needing pruning. Considered to be one of the lowest maintenance of all vines. Crossvine prefer for part to full sun on in medium to rich soils and are able to tolerate drought and brief flooding once established. There are no serious pests or diseases to worry about. Crossvine has thrived in our Lawrence Kansas zone 6a display garden for over 15 years enduring a few occasions of -10° or colder winters. Winter foliage turns purple and remains evergreen till about -10. We have seen -18° without any dieback on the vine other than the loss of foliage that year. This great vine has it all, beautiful flowers, evergreen foliage, and constrained growth habit!

Bouteloua gracilis
Blue Grama Grass
$15.00 $19.50

Blue Grama Grass (Bouteloua gracilis) is a long-lived, clump-forming, warm-season, perennial grass native to North America. It is one of the dominant grasses of the dry shortgrass prairies. Blue grama has very thin green to greyish leaves that turn golden brown in autumn, sometimes also developing interesting shades of orange. Purplish-tinged eyebrow-shaped flowers appear on arching stems above the foliage in early to mid-summer. Height before flowering is 12-15" increasing to 24" after flowering. As a native to the Great Plains, blue grama displays excellent drought tolerance but tolerates a wide range of soils. Avoid poorly-drained soils. In Eastern Kansas, typically our 40 inches of rainfall is sufficient without extra water. Occasionally suffering from excessive rainy spells and high humidity, foliage rust diseases can be a problem in shade or poor air circulation areas. To counteract that in Kansas, plant in full sun on berm with poor sandy, rocky, or clay soil with no irrigation. Blue grama grass works very well in an ornamental grass garden adding contrast, texture, and short stature. Use as mass plantings to create a drift that can be enjoyed from far away. For mass plantings, plant individual plants close together as they don't spread much. Dried foliage holds up very well in the winter offering a one-of-a-kind look. The only maintenance is to cut down or burn before new growth emerges. Combine with other flowering prairie native perennials for a long season of interest. Also useful as a full-sun turf grass for extremely dry or sandy soils or where buffalo grass doesn't work. It can be regularly mowed to 3-4" high.

$20.00 $26.00

Brugmansia is a genus of seven species of flowering plants in the nightshade family Solanaceae from South America. It is typically grown in warmer zones as a shrub or tree but is extinct from the wild (only known in cultivation). Along with other tropicals and succulents in Kansas, Angel Trumpet Flower is usually grown as summer patio plant with amazing foot-long hanging flowers and sweet aroma. Water regularly and place in full sun or part shade. Protect from temperatures below 32 degrees F and move into a cold garage or basement over the winter with minimal watering. Do not allow the pot with rootball to freeze solid or go below 28 degrees for more than a few hours. Allow to go dormant as needed with little care, just cut off dead foliage/twigs and place back out in April or May with a time-release fertilizer. You may also propagate this plant easily by cutting off dormant twigs/branches and stuffing them into the ground. Notice that I didn't say rooting hormone or even being careful was necessary! Landscapers also plant these as an annual in the ground for an enormous tropical effect with fragrant flowers and growth reaching 5-8' in one season from a 1gal container! It is possible to overwinter Brugmansia in the ground in Kansas as a woody perennial. In our trial gardens in Lawrence, KS (zone 6a), a one year established specimen planted in our annual bed was mulched 12-18" thick with leaf mulch survived -10 degrees F. The dieback was deep into the ground but somehow came back from a piece of deep root. The leaf mulch was also well rotted and formed somewhat of an ice barrier insulating effect. Brugmansia species are amongst the most toxic of ornamental plants so do not eat and part of this plant! Brugmansia 'Charles Grimaldi' features orange flowers.

Buchloe dactyloides 'Legacy'
Legacy Buffalo Grass
$15.00 $19.50

Tired of mowing and maintaining that water thirsty lawn? In our quest to be environmentally friendly and save water, we promote Legacy Buffalograss Lawns (Buchloe dactyloides 'Legacy'™). Buffalograss has survived for millions of years, through droughts, floods and insect invasions. It is the only turfgrass that is native to the United States. Buffalograss has a very low water requirement and a deep root system that allows it to draw water from a large area. Buffalograss thrives on only 1/4 inch of water per week to stay green. Water savings with buffalograss is astounding. Over one million gallons of water can be saved on every turf acre every year by replacing a high water-use turfgrass, like bluegrass, with buffalograss. We feel the conservation of water is a must for all of us, but we must also reduce our dependency on excess chemicals and the need for the weekly ritual of mowing. Lawnmowers are one of the worst sources of air pollution we breath. Legacy buffalograss can be mowed only once every 2 to 3 weeks. Since this variety has such a short maximum height, many people choose to leave their lawns un-mowed at 4-6”. ADVANTAGES OF LEGACY BUFFALO GRASS OVER OTHER LAWNS; 1. Buffalograss is the real “Green” lawn. It has environmental and economic traits that cannot be disputed. A typical homeowner will save hundreds of dollars a year on lawn maintenance costs. Large turf installations can save thousands of dollars. 2.Buffalograss requires much less mowing maintenance and in some situations, none. 3.Fewer weed problems occur; the dense growth of buffalo grass smothers out existing weeds and prevents the germination of new seeds. 4. Minimal lawn treatment program of only 3-5 visits is recommended (fescue & bluegrass lawns require 5-7 visits). 5. Buffalograss requires less water; and will survive with no supplemental irrigation. 6. Buffalograss has high wildlife value; it is native to the great plains of USA. 7. The soft texture and mint green color are great assets; its fun to walk on. 8. Buffalograss grows in zones 3-9; tolerates cold in the winter and heat in the summer. 8. Insect, disease and thatch build-up problems rarely occur in buffalograss lawns. 9. Buffalograss is tolerant of a wide range of soil types but prefers heavy clay. 10. Buffalograss can by divided by plugs to fill in damaged or new areas; can’t be seeded. "SO WHY DOESN’T EVERYONE USE BUFFALOGRASS?" (DISADVANTAGES); 1.Buffalograss requires a higher upfront cost and more maintenance during the first year to get it established. Unfortunately, most people only consider the sticker shock of the initial cost. It takes 2-3 years for buffalo grass to pay for itself before savings occur. 2.Most landscape and lawn companies do not promote buffalo grass because they are in business to make money maintaining your lawn. Why would a lawn mowing company promote a lawn that doesn’t need much mowing? Why would an irrigation company promote a lawn that didn’t need an irrigation system?

Buchloe dactyloides 'Prestige'
Prestige Buffalo Grass
$15.00 $19.50

Tired of mowing and maintaining that water thirsty lawn? In our quest to be environmentally friendly and save water, we promote Prestige Buffalograss Lawns (Buchloe dactyloides 'Prestige'™). Buffalograss has survived for millions of years, through droughts, floods and insect invasions. It is the only turfgrass that is native to the United States. Buffalograss has a very low water requirement and a deep root system that allows it to draw water from a large area. Buffalograss thrives on only 1/4 inch of water per week to stay green. Water savings with buffalograss is astounding. Over one million gallons of water can be saved on every turf acre every year by replacing a high water-use turfgrass, like bluegrass, with buffalograss. We feel the conservation of water is a must for all of us, but we must also reduce our dependency on excess chemicals and the need for the weekly ritual of mowing. Lawnmowers are one of the worst sources of air pollution we breath. Prestige buffalograss can be mowed only once every 2 to 3 weeks. Since this variety has such a short maximum height, many people choose to leave their lawns un-mowed at 4-6”. ADVANTAGES OF Prestige BUFFALO GRASS OVER OTHER LAWNS; 1. Buffalograss is the real “Green” lawn. It has environmental and economic traits that cannot be disputed. A typical homeowner will save hundreds of dollars a year on lawn maintenance costs. Large turf installations can save thousands of dollars. 2.Buffalograss requires much less mowing maintenance and in some situations, none. 3.Fewer weed problems occur; the dense growth of buffalo grass smothers out existing weeds and prevents the germination of new seeds. 4. Minimal lawn treatment program of only 3-5 visits is recommended (fescue & bluegrass lawns require 5-7 visits). 5. Buffalograss requires less water; and will survive with no supplemental irrigation. 6. Buffalograss has high wildlife value; it is native to the great plains of USA. 7. The soft texture and mint green color are great assets; its fun to walk on. 8. Buffalograss grows in zones 3-9; tolerates cold in the winter and heat in the summer. 8. Insect, disease and thatch build-up problems rarely occur in buffalograss lawns. 9. Buffalograss is tolerant of a wide range of soil types but prefers heavy clay. 10. Buffalograss can by divided by plugs to fill in damaged or new areas; can’t be seeded. "SO WHY DOESN’T EVERYONE USE BUFFALOGRASS?" (DISADVANTAGES); 1.Buffalograss requires a higher upfront cost and more maintenance during the first year to get it established. Unfortunately, most people only consider the sticker shock of the initial cost. It takes 2-3 years for buffalo grass to pay for itself before savings occur. 2.Most landscape and lawn companies do not promote buffalo grass because they are in business to make money maintaining your lawn. Why would a lawn mowing company promote a lawn that doesn’t need much mowing? Why would an irrigation company promote a lawn that didn’t need an irrigation system? With few industry professionals promoting it, the true benefits remain unknown to the consumer. 3. Most landscape and lawn companies are not educated about buffalograss nor have the experience to successfully install, establish, and maintain buffalograss from plugs. 4. Buffalograss has a few limitations about where it will grow: it needs full sun, it will not grow in wet areas with poor drainage, and it needs a clay-based topsoil; no sand. 5. Buffalograss goes dormant sooner in late fall and greens up later in the spring.
