I'm working on a prairie restoration in the front meadow and it seems the forbes are doing better than the grasses. I'm looking for a little bit larger trades here, like maybe baggies full instead of little packets.
I would especially like:
Andropogon gerardii - big blue stem
Andropogon scoparius - little blue stem
Bouteloua curtipendula - sideoats grama
Eragrostis spectabilis - Purple Love Grass
Hordeum jubatum - Squirrel-tail Grass
hystrix patula - Bottlebrush grass
Koeleria cristata - June Grass
Panicum virgatum - switch grass
Sorghastrum nutans - Indiangrass
Sporobolus heterolepis - Prairie dropseed
I have the following forbs in fairly large amounts. We can talk about amounts if you contact me:
Coreopsis tickseed - Coreopsis tinctoria
Butterfly weed - scarlet blood flower - asclepias curassvica z8
Cone flower purple - Echinacea purpurea
Cone flower pale purple (less)
Cone flower yellow - Echinacea paradoxa (less)
Cone flower yellow - Ratibida columnifera
Helianthus strumosus - pale-leaved woodland sunflower , rough-leaved sunflower(I think) '06 '07 hg C 5 ft yellow multi stem. Not really sure, it kind of looks like pictures I've seen of geliopsis helianthoide also.
Ironweed - Vernonia fasciculata
Joe Pye - Eupatorium maculatum
Milkweed - Asclepias syriaca
Rudbeckia triloba - brown eyed susan
Gayfeather - Liatris (smaller amounts of rough blazing star)
I'm also interested in other natives please see my list at
