Feature Plant:

"Marshall's Delight" Beebalm

Monarda, or Beebalm, is a wonderful mid-summer plant that likes sun but can take some shade. This cultivar, as others, is based on the Illinois native Monarda, which has a place in our prairies. Accordingly, it attracts butterflies and hummingbirds. It is also an ornamental herb, based in the mint family. 18-24".

Native Plants in your landscape

Native plants will draw many
butterflies to your garden. Here is

Why use native plants?

Natives are the plants that were here before the prairie and other areas were farmed. One of the best reasons to use native plants, is that they are highly adapted to our sometimes harsh climate. Their roots are usually 3 to 5 times the height of the plant. Once established, a period of drought in August won't bother them a bit. They are very hardy and thus require no pesticides.

There are plants for every garden situation. Full sun, part shade and full shade. It all depends on the areas that they are naturally found in the wild.

Sometimes identified with imported Eur-asian plants that have become nuisance plants, many natives are actually quite rare and are not aggressive spreaders.
