Echinacea purpurea 'Julia'
Julia Orange Coneflower
$17.00 $22.10

Echinacea purpurea is an herbaceous perennial native to parts of eastern and midwestern United States most common in Missouri and Arkansas. Its habitats include dry open woods, prairies and barrens. Echinacea are native to North America, featuring sunflower-like flowers with a dark center and colorful petals. Colors on native plants include purple, magenta, white, yellow. Intensive breeding efforts to fish out recessive genes have brought bright orange and red into the picture. Flowers occur in early to mid summer often continuing into fall especially if dead-headed. Its individual flowers (florets) within the flower head are two-toned, having both male and female organs in each flower. (hermaphroditic) Bees and butterflies including the monarch are common pollinators. The dead flowers are attractive to some for winter interest but for those wanting a tidy your garden, they can be trimmed early. Leaving some dried seed heads will be beneficial for wildlife and provide winter food for finches and other birds. Best growth generally occurs in full to part sun with well drained soils with low to average moisture. In Eastern Kansas, typically our 40 inches of rainfall is sufficient without extra water. Coneflower can also handle short one to two day flooding events and are sometimes used along the higher perimeter of rain gardens to bring in pollinators. Coneflower mixes well with many other types of plants ranging from other native plants to evergreens to hardy tropicals. Rabbits can be a problem young immature plants. A popular method of control is covering the plant with an upside down bowl-shaped chicken wire cage for the first year to allow basil foliage to establish well. You can quickly make these yourself with a low cost roll of chicken wire. Mature plants especially in groups with other mature landscaping generally do not have rabbit problems. Flowers are also popular in the florist industry as cut flowers or in the cottage garden. The genus echinacea has undergone intense breeding with the introduction of hundreds of new cultivars in the last 10 years. Julia Orange Coneflower (Echinacea purpurea 'Julia') is a new variety that features bright orange flowers over a long blooming season. Most orange or red types if allowed to self-seed will produce purple flowering plants.

Echinocactus grusonii
Golden Barrel Cactus (Tropical)
$40.00 $52.00

Golden Barrel Cacti (Echinocactus grusonii) are known for their bright yellow spines. Native to deserts in Mexico, it's usually grown as a patio or house plant in Kansas. In the wild, established golden barrel cacti are hardy to 13 degrees F for short periods of time. Grow in full sun with no extra watering except 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. If repotting, make sure to use a sharp draining low organic cactus mix with plenty of sand and perlite. 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. Before extreme cold occurs, move to a bright interior window over the winter with no watering and keep above freezing. As a winter house plant, it will look presentable all winter long with just no waterings.(also to prevent soft winter growth) As a permanent house plant, provide bright light and allow the soil to dry between waterings for many years of carefree enjoyment. Plants grown permanently indoors may begin to elongate stretching for light and lose their spine color. It can be hard to reproduce the intense UV sunlight they need so moving outside for the summer is best. Generally if moving outside for the summer, allow 1-2 weeks of part shade or morning sun before placing in full sun. Plants with time to acclimate will thrive in full sun but be careful not to rush it or sunburning will occur. Potted plants are very low maintenance. I have never seen any insect problems on this plant.

Echinopsis / Trichocereus pachanoi
San Pedro cactus (Tropical)
$20.00 $26.00

Grown for its beautiful bluish-green skin and relatively few spines, San Pedro Cactus () is usually a patio or house plant in Kansas. Because it grows naturally in the Peruvian Andes Mountains at high altitude and with high rainfall, it can withstand temperatures far below that of many other cacti. In the wild, this species is hardy to 15-20 degrees F for short periods of time. Grow in full 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. If repotting, make sure to use a sharp draining medium organic cactus mix with plenty of sand and perlite. To play is safe, potted plants are best moved in before night temperatures get below 45 degrees F. It is important to avoid the combination of wet and cold. Before extreme cold occurs, move to a bright interior window over the winter with no watering and keep above freezing. As a winter house plant, it will look presentable all winter long with just no 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 of carefree enjoyment. Plants grown permanently indoors may begin to elongate stretching for light producing weak new growth. It can be hard to reproduce the intense UV sunlight they need so moving outside for the summer is best. Generally if moving outside for the summer, allow 1-2 weeks of part shade or morning sun before placing in full sun. Plants with time to acclimate will thrive in full sun but be careful not to rush it or sunburning will occur. Potted plants are very low maintenance. I have never seen any insect problems on this plant. The San Pedro cactus contains a number of alkaloids, including the well-studied chemical mescaline. In the US, it is currently legal to cultivate the San Pedro cactus for gardening and ornamental purposes, but not for consumption.

Epimedium 'Amber Queen'
Amber Queen Barrenwort / Epimedium
$10.00 $11.00

Barrenwort (Epimedium) features compact dainty mounds of green to colored weed-resistant foliage. Wispy flowers appear above emerging foliage in mid-spring. Improved breeding has resulted in many different flower colors even including orange. Semi-evergreen foliage can sometimes look bedraggled by late summer if there is too much overhead watering and humidity. Barrenwort prefers average to dry garden conditions and even thrive and dry shade. Plantings can thrive for decades if in the right spot; there is no such thing as overcrowding for Barrenwort. When planted in mass, growth is slow at first but eventually a cake-like rhizome system will form and completely smother out any weeds and compete well with trees for water and nutrients. While barrenwort can tolerate full sun, they prefer part to full shade. Sun burning is possible with temperatures over 100° and there are better plants to use in hot areas. Due to slow spreading growth, you shouldn't leave very much room in-between barrenwort plants or you will be waiting many years for the patch to fill in. Weeds can be a problem in that open area between plants if spacing is too wide. We recommend 9-12" spacing and use for small nooks in the shade garden. If planning for a larger area, still figure on the tight spacing but allow for a higher budget that you will consider a permanent investment. Barrenwort is a real trooper for the dry shade garden! Epimedium 'Amber Queen' features airy, delicate-looking flowers that have bright yellow spurs with orange-red centers, looking light orange from a distance. Flowers are produced along the length of the flower stems, which are up to 24" long. Bright green leaves have a blush red color close to the crown. Growth is faster and height is taller at 12-24" Albeit still slower when compared to other perennials.

Equisetum hyemale
Horsetail Reed
$45.00 $58.50

Horsetail Reed (Equisetum hyemale) is a very primitive "Dinosaur" plant with a one-of-a-kind appearance. Tube-like segmented stems grow vertical creating a dense bamboo-like appearance when grown properly in a pot or edging. The evergreen stems (down to -30 degrees F) are particularly noticeable in winter and can provide significant interest to the landscape. It is mostly used as a native erosion control plant in large areas along streams and wet wooded areas. For the home garden, the species is generally too aggressive to mix with other plants unless contained. The best use is as a marginal water garden plant in a sealed container. Horsetail rhizomes cannot spread thru open water or hop over an edge in the open air. If planted in the garden and once established, it is extremely difficult to remove by digging because its rhizomes spread wide and deep. Roundup is not effective against primitive plants such as horsetail and mosses. If planted in the garden, use professional soil barriers or no-fail sealed planters (no drainage holes ok) to restrict growth. Native to large portions of Eurasia, Canada and the U.S., including Kansas, equisetum is the single surviving genus of a class of primitive vascular plants dating back to the mid-Devonian period (350 + million years ago). As a plant evolved before twigs and leaves, Horsetail Reed is a non-flowering, seedless plant that reproduces by spores.

Eucomis comosa 'Safari Adventure'
Safari Adventure Burgundy Pineapple Lily / Eucomis
$20.00 $26.00

Safari Adventure Pineapple Lily (Eucomis comosa 'Safari Adventure') is typically grown for their wide tropical foliage and pineapple-like flowers. Deep purple foliage contrasts well with many other flower colors. The plants are temperate and subtropical herbaceous perennial bulbs native to areas with a summer wet season and dry winter. Pineapple Lily are hardy outside as a perennial when established and with minimal effort at least up to zone 6a. During the growing season, fertilize, water regularly, and plant in full sun. Plant these bulbs in the ground at least 6-8" deep with 3-4" of mulch to enjoy a wonderful tropical effect! Foliage may look bedwraggled by fall so it is ok to cut back foliage at that time. They can also be grown as a flowering summer patio plant. If growing as a potted plant and trying to overwinter, allowing the foliage to frost is ok, it will not kill the root system. However, do not allow the pot with rootball to freeze solid or go below 20 degrees for more than a few hours; move into a cold garage or basement over the winter with no watering. Cut back and allow to go dormant and place entire pot back out in April or May with a time-release fertilizer. Another more labor intensive way to overwinter pineapple lily is to remove them from the dirt, dust with fungicide, place in box with sawdust, and keep in the refrigerator. We consider this method old-fashioned and too much work but ok if you only want to save a few bulbs. If digging from the ground in colder zones, just save a big chunk with the dirt intact and place into a large pot in the garage.

As one of the most dry-shade tolerant plants there is, it's thick leathery leaves seem to handle everything nature has to throw at it! That being said, beware that this is an extremely vigorous plant that crowds out most weeds and is itself weed-like, with a very spreading growth habit. After establishment, it is high maintenance if it has already filled the space and you don't want it to spread any further: it even resists Round-up! It will climb trees if you allow it, generally using it for support to allow its mature form to develop and flowering to occur. From there, red-orange seeds develop that are spread everywhere and will overrun nearby native forests in Eastern Kansas. For the home garden, the species is generally too aggressive to mix with other plants. At our plant nursery, since we cannot eradicate it, we have allowed it to cover a tall fence along the back of our property where it has crept in from the neighboring woods. It does form a nice evergreen screen as it weaves into the trees.

Euphorbia amygdaloides var. robbiae
Robbie Spurge / Euphorbia
$5.00 $6.50

Robbie Spurge (Euphorbia amygdaloides var. robbiae) is grown for its deep green glossy whorled foliage that is very architectural and symetrical. They have everything a gardener might ask for; beautiful spring flowers, dependable dark green foliage, evergreen during winter, pest-free foliage, and ease of care with very low maintenance. Rare greenish-yellow flowers last incredibly long 1 to 2 months and finally turn brown in need of dead-heading. Native to dry woodland locations in Europe, Turkey and the Caucasus, Robbie Spurge tolerates poor soils, including rocky-sandy ones. Root rot can be a problem in poor drainage areas. It prefers average to dry garden conditions with dappled or morning sun. Sun burning is possible with temperatures over 100° so avoid full afternoon sun. Plantings can thrive for many years if in the right spot and there is no such thing as overcrowding. The growth rate is slow at first but eventually forms a nice weed resistant cover so space new plants relatively close together is desiring this effect. Evergreen foliage is hardy to about -10°F with complete death occurring at about -15°F for unmulched plants. Robbie Spurge is less adapted to consistent summer heat and humidity of zone 7b areas or South. With poisonous foliage, these plants resist deer and rabbit browsing. What a great plant for the dry shade garden!

Euphorbia bicompacta var. rubra
Red-leaf African Milk Bush (Tropical)
$18.00 $23.40

The velvety maroon foliage colors and patterns of Red-leaf African Milk Bush (Euphorbia bicompacta var. rubra) are amazing. Usually used as a patio or house plant in Kansas. Grow in full sun to full shade with optional extra watering including that which comes from rainfall. Plants with time to acclimate will thrive in full sun but be careful not to rush it or sunburning will occur. Generally if moving outside for the summer, allow 2-3 weeks of part shade or morning sun before placing in full sun. 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. 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. Then move into a cold garage, basement, or bright window over the winter with occasional watering. As a winter house plant, it will look presentable all winter long with just a few waterings. As a permanent house plant, provide bright light and allow the soil to dry between waterings for many years of carefree enjoyment. Potted plants are very low maintenance needing very occasional pruning or topping. Leaves are filled with a milky sap which seems to flow out very vigorously even with only the tiniest injury. All members of the genus Euphorbia produce a milky sap called latex that is toxic and can range from a mild irritant to very poisonous.

Euphorbia myrsinites
Donkeytail Spurge / Euphorbia
$5.00 $6.50

Donkeytail Spurge (Euphorbia myrsinites) is grown for its powder-blue/silver whorled foliage that is very architectural and symetrical. The stems creep along the ground in several directions from the main stem. Beautiful spring flowers are chartruse and foliage is solidly evergreen during winter and completely pest-free. Native to rocky and grassy places of southeastern Europe and Asia Minor, Donkeytail Spurge tolerates a wide range of growing conditions except excess moisture. Performance is best in poor soils, including rocky-sandy ones. Root rot can be a problem in poor drainage areas. It prefers full sun but can also grow well in full dry-shade. Individual plants tend to be short lived so allow some self seeding to occur within the group of plants. Due to self-seeding, it is considered a noxious weed in several western states and should not be planted in those areas. However, it is not a problem in Eastern Kansas or further East areas with over 35 inches of rainfall per year. Do not plant in rich moist soils or root rot will probably occur. Donkeytail Spurge is less adapted to consistent summer heat and humidity of zone 7b Southeast parts of the United States. With poisonous foliage, these plants resist deer and rabbit browsing. Wear gloves when handling this plant and avoid the milky sap. Great plant for berms or clammoring over retaining walls in hot West or South exposures in full sun or the opposite full dry-shade!
