Known variously as American hornbeam ironwood, or blue beech in different parts of the country, Carpinus caroliniana has an unusual rippled trunk, witch is pale gray and sinewy. It comes in both single leader and multi-stemmed trunks. American hornbeam has graceful draping branches that give this tree a lot of character, even without leaves. A nut like hanging fruit persists into the winter. In the spring you will find small, pale yellow, papery flowers in three bracts of three. Summer brings shiny, blue-green leaves. In the fall the leaves are a gorgeous orange-gold to scarlet.

11. Hello Yellow
Click to display
A virtually hassle-free, very long lived perennial, this cultivar of our native A. tuberosa offers three months of golden yellow blooms from early through late summer. Deadheading the flowers will stimulate another bloom cycle about a month after the first one.

Gather bouquets of Asclepias all summer long; the long stems are wonderful for cutting and are long-lasting. Sear the ends of the cut stems over a flame to stop the milky sap from leaking out.

Following the fabulous flowers, green fruits develop which rupture to reveal seeds with long, silvery-white, silky hairs reminiscent of its cousin, common milkweed. These are great to use in dried flower arrangements.

Dune Grass, American Beach Grass, Marram GrassAmmophila breviligulata
23. Dune Grass
Click to display
Dune Grass is a spreading, rhizomatous native bunch grass common along the shores of Lake Michigan. Dune grass is often used as an erosion control plant for dune stabilization or on non-dune areas where soils are sandy and dry. Dune grass is attractive to many homeowners because it requires minimal maintenance-no mowing necessary, and once established, this native plant requires no irrigation or fertilizer.

Stems of plant (culms) should be planted at least 8" deep. One to three culms should be planted per hole and spacing depends on how much erosion protection is needed or desired density.

  • 18" spacing: For areas with flat ground and little threat of erosion.
  • 12" spacing: For flat or sloped areas that need some erosion protection. One or two sprigs of dune grass per square foot.
  • 8" spacing: For sloped areas with moderate erosion. Two per square foot.
  • 6" spacing: For high erosion areas (steep slopes and potential 70 mph winds).

Dutchman's BreechesDicentra cucullaria
24. Dutchman's Breeches
Click to display
Dutchman's Breeches is a true spring woodland ephemeral species. It flowers early in the spring when sunlight hits the woodland floor before the canopy of the trees fill in. This is an ideal time for the first emerging bumblebees to find and nectar on the flowers. By early summer, the green foliage (which resemble fern-like leaves) will fade to a light yellow (see photo) and eventually will go into total dormancy by mid-summer. The common name Dutchman's breeches comes from the pair of outer petals which form a swollen 'V' making the hanging flower look like a pair of white breeches/bloomers hung upside-down.

83. Minnie Pearl
Click to display
Clusters of large, pure white flowers completely cover the glossy, green foliage from early to late summer. In warmer zones, this plant reportedly begins blooming in April, long before the paniculatas. The relatively short plants spread slowly to form a 2ft wide clump in about 3 years.

An especially early bloom time, incredible disease resistance, and a slowly spreading habit set this white flowering Phlox apart from similar cultivars.

‘Minnie Pearl’ was discovered growing along the roadside in Kemper, Mississippi by plantswoman Karen Partlow. It appears to be a naturally occurring hybrid of P. maculata x P. glaberrima, though it has a nice upright habit like the paniculatas.

Sedum ternatum is the most widespread native Sedum species in eastern North America, commonly known as woodland stonecrop. It has white flowers, blooming April to May. This shade-tolerant species is often found in the forest understory, although it can also grow in sunnier locations when sufficient moisture is present. Its common name of "stonecrop" evokes its ability to thrive atop boulders, where its succulent leaves help it to retain moisture in shallow soil. It adapts well to garden use.
