(Iowa Crabapple, Prairie Crabapple)

An upright-branching but broad deciduous tree with pink springtime flowers, prairie crabapple is native to the central United States. The leaves are green with fuzzy, whitened undersides and shaped like a reversed tear-drop with small jagged teeth. In spring, before leaves emerge, pale pink buds are found on the twigs, opening to fragrant, white, five-petaled flowers that will be pollinated by honeybees. The fruits that ensue are small and mature to a greasy-skinned, yellow-green. The flesh is sour...

(Manchurian Crabapple)

Extremely cold hardy and floriferous, Manchurian crabapple also yields an abundance of bi-colored fruits that are great for jam. A large, upright deciduous tree native to eastern Russian and northern China, its green leaves are long ovals. In early spring, small clusters of pale pink flower buds appear with the new leaves. The flowers that follow have large white petals, are fragrant, and produce pollen copiously. The fruits mature yellow and pink-red at the size of ping-pong balls. Usually the fruits...

(Muskmallow)

A pretty little cousin of the hollyhock, muskmallow has attractively lobed leaves and dainty light pink flowers from summer to fall. An erect but bushy perennial from Europe and northwestern Africa, it is relatively short-lived but easily seeds itself for continual renewal.

Muskmallow gets its name from the musky scent emitted when its green foliage is brushed or rubbed. The medium to dull dark green leaves are nearly heart-shaped at the plant's base, to a very ornately lobed, antler-like form...

It tends to inhabit open fields, disturbed lands, waste ground and roadsides and can withstand growing in very poor soils.

Habit varies widely among individual plants, but all have crinkly, fuzzy, heavily veined...

(Ostrich Fern)

Ostrich fern is a herbaceous plant native to northern woodlands and wetlands in Europe, East Asia, and North America. In spring its tightly curled "fiddleheads" unfurl to majestic sterile fronds clustered in vase-shaped clumps. It also produces fertile spore-bearing fronds that give the appearance of stunted, desiccated sterile fronds. They remain standing after the fertile fronds decline in fall. Plants spread vigorously by thick underground rhizomes.

To reach its impressive full size, ostrich...
