Not yet in bloom but looking very good: Bowman’s Root (Gillenia trifoliata) and its close relative American Ipecac (G. stipulata). both have starry white flowers and pretty fall foliage colour. American Ipecac ‘s range is further south and west so I expect it to be more drought-tolerant than Bowman’s Root.
A great companion for Bowman’s root is the lovely Wild Geranium.
Mountain Pussytoes are starting in to bloom. This is a very low Pussytoes with grey-pink flowers, very nice for rock gardens.
The two smaller wild Irises are budding nicely, little Dwarf Arctic Iris and mid-size Beach-head Iris.
I am a big fan of Spikenard, an imposing plant for shade with a great fruit display in the fall. They were slow to get going this spring, but are now making up for lost time.
Will you be meeting up in the west end again?
Yes, I’ll be bringing plants to Britannia again on Wednesday, May 27th. And, On Saturday, June 6th, which would have been the day of the cancelled Fletcher Wildlife Garden Sale, we will be in a private driveway just south of the FWG, behind the Hellenic Centre.

Yes, yes and yes.
Can you please advise me of the total I owe. Was it 2 pm last pickup?
Your total is $39. This time it is after 6 pm (I am going to be in the east end in the afternoon.)
Ok! So 6pm works for you, at the lot where I went last time?
Yes, same parking lot as last time.
Thanks! See you later!
Can you provide the address of the June 6th sale, and the hours? I yanked out a lot of tick seed and now have a bare spot in my partially shaded, dry limey meadow. Any suggestions?
Hi Tanya, Prairie Smoke is great for a low evergreen plant with early spring bloom and seed interest. Prairie Flax is a possibility. And Smooth Aster (Symphyotrichu laeve).
We will be at the pick-up location from 10:30 to 12:30 on Saturday. If there is a great deal of interest, we will slot folks into a preferred time slot (so far, not necessary). The location is a private driveway on a road behind the Hellenic Centre. I can send you the exact address with the details of e-transferring.
Thanks Trish, I already have prairie smoke. I have New England Aster but no smooth aster, so I could take a couple of those. I need somthing of mid height, or a grass.
I have some Prairie Dropseed, which is a gorgeous mid-height grass. Send a message on the contact page aout what you woul like to order so I can respond by email.
