Sweet Success

Each year we research unique plants to grow in our prairie garden. Our research often includes a little geography lesson...comparing climates around the world to our Nebraska growing season! A little Aussie wildflower that doesn't seem to mind our heat and humidity! Clianthus Formosus or Sturt Pea- this little treasure has become an annual member of our garden family!
Another successful experiment! Gossypium...commonly known as Cotton! These beautiful blooms are followed by pods that contain the cotton. Our first pod has not yet opened but we are looking forward to sharing the first pictures with you! just never know what you might find blooming in our prairie garden!
