There's so much that changes in the MG landscape throughout the year...we thought a plant trial and garden blog was the best way to start sharing "what's new" and "what's happening with all those new varieties" with you! Visit often for updates on how trial plants are performing in the gardens and to see photos throughout the season as we grow and change!

Rain Garden Plants

Hello all
I'm returning from a trip to the MIDAM trade show where I did a presentation on rain gardens. It wasn't the longest or best presentation in the world, but it did spark interest in the plants I spoke of. I went paperless to be more Earth-friendly, and people wanted me to post the list of plants I went over. So without further ado, here they are.
Native Plants:
Asclepias incarnata
Lythrum alatum
Lobelia cardinalis
Iris virginica shrevei
Veronicastrum virginicum
Pycnanthemum virginianum
Verbena hastata
Penstemon digitalis
Zizia aptera
Non-native Perennials
Eupatorium dubium 'Little Joe'
Amsonia hubrichtii
Nepeta subsessilis 'Sweet Dreams'
Chelone 'Hot Lips'
Iris siberica 'Temper Tantrum'
Panicum virgatum 'Northwind'
Sporobolus heterolepis
Molinia litoralis 'Transparent'
Clethra alnifolia 'Ruby Spice'
Cornus 'Isanti'
Salix purpurea 'Nana'

Soon I will return to posting pictures and information on the new plants. Until next time, have a great day!
