(Jenny's Stonecrop)

Often going as Sedum rupestre, this fine-textured stonecrop is a robust, creeping, evergreen perennial from Europe. Hardy, sun-loving and drought tolerant, it is grown for its carpets of narrow, fleshy, needle-like foliage. The leaves are typically blue-green and often become tinged with orange or red in winter. Flat-topped clusters of small yellow star-like flowers open in July atop nodding stems that become erect. Bumblebees and butterflies visit the flowers.

(Rock Stonecrop)

A bright-leaved form of a robust, creeping, evergreen perennial from Europe, 'Angelina' makes a fine rock garden or container plant for cold climates. It spreads via rooting stems to form fine-textured mats of bright yellow-green, needle like foliage that darkens to bronze and red in very cold weather.

In early summer it bears branched clusters of yellow star-like flowers. These are attractive to bumblebees and butterflies. A rock garden favorite, it asks for full sun and porous relatively...

(American Senna)

What a midsummer knockout! American senna's tall stature and large panicles of bright golden yellow flowers shine in the bright sun. An herbaceous perennial, this wildflower is native to prairies, old-fields and open woodlands from Ontario south to Wisconsin, Tennessee and Georgia. Fall frosts kill the plant to the roots, but the dry stems and seed pods persist into the winter before collapsing and decaying providing some visual interest.

Rising from the warm soil in mid- to late-spring, America...

(Silver Buffaloberry)

A remarkably tough and tolerant plant, silver buffaloberry has silvery gray-green foliage and red berries that are sour but edible, often used in jam. An upright but rounded deciduous shrub, it is native to western North America.

The medium to light green elongated leaves are covered in tiny white hairs, causing variation in some plants to have a gray-green or fully silvery coloration. Plants are dioecious - male and female flowers, both yellow-green and tiny, are borne upon separate shrubs....

(Moss Campion)

Bright green, needle-like leaves cheerfully support the deep pink blossoms in summer on the quaint moss campion. A circumboreal evergreen perennial, that is, native to the mountains of the lands closest the North Pole, the very dwarf plant forms low mounds that resembles tufts of moss.

The thin, bright green leaves form a low and rounded cushion. In summertime, small five petaled flowers with two notches at the tip of each petal appear on the plant, nearly covering all the foliage if soil is...

(Prairie Dock, Prairie Rosinweed)

Towering above prairie grasses and other wildflowers, prairie dock cannot be missed in mid to late summer when the bright yellow flowers appear. A tall, clump forming herbaceous perennial with unique leaves, it is from eastern Canada southward into the southern United States.

The tall stems, if cut open, will exude a resin and turpentine fragrance. The leaves are oval to heart-like and usually are in a basal clump, growing from the taproot. Each leaf has a sandpaper texture with coarse teeth...

(Alpine Blue-eyed Grass)

Though it resembles a grass with its clump of strappy leaves, alpine blue-eyed grass is actually related to irises, a link visible in its flowers. An unassuming herbaceous perennial, it is native to the cool-summer meadows and moist soils of northern North America from the Canadian and American Rocky Mountains eastward to the Great Lakes and Newfoundland.

The strap-like, thin leaves are green and rather short, held in a small cluster. In midsummer, slightly taller stems reach above the leaves...
