Senna marilandica – A fast growing woody herbaceous perennial who pea-like glaucous leaves cover the 6ft tall stems that arise from soil level each year. Popular with all pollinators, praying mantis use the stiff stems to lay egg sacs and the golden yellow flowers are favored by bees.

Distrubtion: Central to North Eastern States        

Zone: 7b-10a

Amsonia tabernaemontana – commonly referred to as bluestar is a must for every northeast state with a full-sun free-draining location the clump-forming Amsonia takes on a woody apperance in a single growing season and dies back to soil level each winter. Ferny like light to mid green leaves give this popular native a ferny look particulalry as the they change colors through the season with a golden hue by late October.

Distribution: AL, AR, DE, FL, GA, IL, IN, KS, KY, LA, MA, MD, MO, MS, NC, NJ, NY, OH, OK, PA, SC, TN, TX, VA.

Zone: 3b-9a

Monarda fistulosa – Essential for pollinators Bee balm or wild bergamot is a tough perennial plant that prefers full-sun and free draining soils. Growing well alongside Aster, Coreopsis and Milkweeds, Bergamot makes a great addition to the wild flower or cultivaed garden

Distrubtion: North America to North East Mexico.

Zone: 3a-9a

Seed Count:

Average of 25-50+ seeds per pack.

Direct Sowing: Recommended.

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.

Alternatively use the following techniques to improve germination:

Damp Stratification: will help with fine seed germination~ to do so, place seeds in moist sand or peat in the refrigerator for about 6 weeks prior to planting. Keep the medium and seeds in a sealed ziplock baggie to hold in moisture. Remove them after the stratification period, and plant them in the seed mix or.

Hot Water Scarfying: can be used to speed up the germination process, simple drop the seeds into pre-boiled water that has chilled for 30 seconds allow them to soak for 24hrs before sowing.

Keep soil moist, not wet. At the end of the cold stratification, keep pots covered and place them in a warm, sunny location. Remove zip-lock bag as seedlings appear.

Alternatively keep it simple by direct sowing where you would like them to flower, in Fall or Early Spring, or start in small pots on a window sill several weeks before the last frost in your area.
