'A Selection of Prairie Garden Plants' available from Avondale Nursery

A Selection of Prairie Garden Plants

A garden of height, transparency and texture – tall plants among short. Walk through a summer meadow of ornamental grasses, asters and perennial sunflowers. They provide structure and drama through the cold winter months, touched by frost in the morning sun.
