"Kathleen that's Baptisis australis. It blooms in late May to early June up there. Culver's root looks much different and blooms in July-ish."

"Heather, I've devised a system that worked well on a Master Gardener's bus tour, 50+ MG's asking questions throughout the whole yard.  Place a 24" gladiola stake on the same side of representative plants; you might identify…"

"Thanks to both of you!  I've been lost.  I did not think of planting horizontal slopes.  Do you cover the seeds with any type of soil or just let them be?  I've been doing both- I did use side oats grama in my seed…"

"Salvia azurea, grey-headed coneflower, purple coneflower, side oats grama, baptisia--these are all deep tap-rooted and should help stabilize a slope."

"We have a small acreage at church that we are allowing/encouraging to go back to native grasses and flowers.  Keeping people off the property was the first step.  Next we are trying to re-seed with seed balls that include Cone Flower, Big…"

Hi, Benjamin

Glad to see someone close to Omaha in this group. Was just in Lincoln a couple of weeks ago at a picnic in Antelope Park, drove around that area and there is so beautiful public flower gardens in the Lincoln area.

Greetings, Benjamin, from an MG in central Oklahoma.  Started a mini-prairie last year, waiting to see how it develops.

"Yes I do like my sunsets here, thank-you. You have a nice stand of red Dianthus. I'm into edible flowers too. How do you keep the bugs out of your Columbine? Any time I ever grew them they got all full of bugs, since you can't eat them I…"

"I am so glad that the white crown sparrows have returned to Santa Barbara. I am enjoying watching them in my bird bath and throwing seed on the ground for them. I had such a tough summer with the house and purple finches. I would sometimes find 5 a…"
