Your Source for Native Grass & Wildflower Seed

Stocking Stuffers
It's Almost Seeding Season!
Asclepias tuberosa - Butterfly Milkweed
Butterfly Milkweed is a plant of dry, well drained soils. Does well in the home garden and adds diversity in prairie plantings. Attracts monarch butterflies who lay eggs on the leaves which are consumed by caterpillars.
Asclepias incarnata - Swamp Milkweed
As the name implies, this member of the Milkweed family is typically found in moist to wet areas in nature. It will do well in normal garden soil as well. A magnet for Monarch butterflies and other pollinators.
Asclepias syriaca - Common Milkweed
Not as common as it once was due to changes in agricultural practices and increases in manicured turf. This Milkweed is adaptable to a wide variety of soil moistures and does great in "Wild" gardens. Spreads by underground stolons so you may want to plant it in a bottomless bucket if you plant it in a garden.

Thank you for visiting Ohio Prairie Nursery's website. We're glad you're here.

Whether this is new to you or you are already using native wildflower and grass seed, you are making a positive difference and an important contribution to the future. By using native grasses and native wildflower seeds  in your landscape, you are helping to increase diversity and provide valuable habitat for other species of living things. Native insects, mammals, reptiles, amphibians and birds evolved alongside the native plants that support them.

The landscapes we create take resources to maintain. By using native material you are reducing the need for watering, pesticides and fertilizers. The deep root systems of most native wildflowers and grasses increase the ability of the soil to absorb water and help stabilize a stormwater network that is over capacity. You are also reducing erosion which helps keep our rivers and lakes clean!

Native plants started from native grass and wildflower seed help create a sense of place. By using the species that naturally belong in your yard or neighborhood you are keeping a connection to the botanical history of your area alive.

On behalf of the thousands of native insects, mammals, reptiles, amphibians and birds that don't have a voice...THANK YOU AND PRAIRIE ON!
