I have selected five top performing native plants for Northeast US that enjoy between 2 and 6 hrs of part sun a day, a moisture retentive site or poor soils.

Eutrochium maculatum –  Colonies of Joe Pye Weed are a popular sights across many north american regions, particularly as their are native species for each eco-region. Joe-Pye Weed is a moisture loving, part-full sun native, which is native to much of Northeastern region of the US, particularly found thriving wild in marsh, ditches and mountain areas.   

Distribtion: Northeast America

Zone: 3b-8a

Eryngium yuccifolium – Rattlesnake master or Eryngo is a popular native with gardeners, and wildlife. Eryngium yuccifolium is a great hardy addition to the dry wildflower border, meadow or pots attracting a frenzy of activity from native bees and butterflies, hummingbirds and beneficial bugs. Deep tap roots anchor this fast growing native, large metallic looking  strappy leaves add an architectural effect to any sunny garden border, however roots prefer free -draining soil and can be short-lived in damp growing conditions.

Distrubtion: Central and Eastern US states

Zone: 3-9

Verbena haastata – Purple Vervain is incredibly popular with butterflies and late-season pollinators, great for pollinators in the fall, this compact Verbena flowers at between 2 – 4ft making it a perfect height for viewing butterflies and hummingbirds at play. Verbena is a fast-growing, long season flowering, short-lived perennial that self-seeds freely. Dry to moist in full or part sun.

Distribtion: Central to North Eastern States, and Canada.

Zone: 4a-9a

Little Bluestem – Schizachyrium scoparium is a fun grassy perennial that emerges in spring to form silvery-blue grassy mounds, by early-summer the grass becomes more silvery (in full sun) and upright when in flower attaining only 18-30″ tall by Fall. Easy to raise from seed, these seedlings will develop into strong fast-growing clumps of grasses that can be divided and used in multiple locations. Prefers free-draining soil but is happy if grown in full or part sun. Plant in large groups to great effect.

Distribution: North American prairie, costal or mountain region.

Zone: 3-9

Solidago chilensis – Sweet scented goldenrod – Solidago is a mid-season flowering perennial essential for providing nectar for butterflies and pollinators. Goldenrod grows from 3-4ft tall as the plant mature height and number of flowering stems increase as the hardy native perennial forms a network of roots. Smooth lance-shaped leaves and a hairy rigid flower stem develops amass of yellow branched starlike flowers Aug thru September. Thriving on poor soils and competing with grasses Solidago is happy on the prairie or at home in the cottage garden.

Distrubtion: AL, AR, AZ, CA, CO,  CT, DC, DE, FL, GA, HI, IA, IL, IN, KS, KY, LA, MA, MD, ME, MI, MN, MO, MS, MT, NC, ND, NE, NH, NJ, NM, NY, OH, OK, PA, RI, SC, SD, TN, TX, VA, VT, WI, WV.

Seed Count:

Average of 25-50+ seeds per pack.

Direct Sowing: Recommended. (See Winter Jug Method here)

Direct sow seeds in fall and allow seeds to naturally cold stratify. When starting seeds indoors, sow finely and barely cover seeds with soil. I recommend sowing these seeds, direct in Fall on a prepared seedbed or garden container, water well, and protect from winter weather with a fabric fleece if some seeds germinate early.

1) Sow direct in a prepared seedbed
2) Cold frame sheltered location outdoors
3) Under lights
4) Bright windowsill

I like to grow in pots this way you can break dormancy, simply by moving the pots around and most seeds germinate in batches, care must be taken when picking out to avoid disturbing emerging seedlings.

Pot young plants on until large enough to plant out, this native plant mix prefers poor soil in full sun.
