North Creek Pollinator Collection

Description
With our friends at North Creek Nursery in Pennsylvania, we've assembled a 20-plant collection that provides continuous blooms and colorful foliage for months. A warm season bunch grass, Purple Love Grass has panicles of reddish purple flowers that rise above the foliage in late summer. Its narrow, light green leaves turn stunning bronze-red in autumn. Prairie Dropseed features fine-textured, deep green foliage with lovely, light and airy flowers. In the fall, its foliage turns glowing, pumpkin orange. Gilded Lace Coreopsis delivers prolific flowers from late summer through fall. Its lacy, fernlike foliage grows up to 4' tall and is mildew resistant. Pollinators love the clusters of sweetly scented, lavender flowers on Jeana Phlox. Blooming from midsummer through early fall, this phlox possesses outstanding mildew resistance. Raydon's Favorite Aster, one of our most reliable native perennial asters, has a strikingly beautiful mounded appearance with masses of violet-blue, daisylike flowers on 2-3' tall plants. Blooming from mid to late autumn, it is a preferred nectar source for many butterfly species.

  • Unique CharactersticsPurple Love Grass: You'll fall for love grass when panicles of reddish purple flowers rise above the foliage in late summer. Eragrostis spectabilis is a warm season bunch grass with narrow leaves arranged somewhat randomly in 10" clumps. Attractive throughout the growing season, the light green foliage turns stunning bronze-red in autumn. This grass needs full sun and will thrive in poor, sandy soil or any soil with good drainage. It prefers even moisture but can be quite drought tolerant. Love grass will slowly spread by rhizomes to a width of about 3' and may self seed. Use it alone in mass plantings or intermingle the 24" inflorescences with Rudbeckia fulgida, Ruellia humilis, and Eurybia divaricata. - Mt.
