Whether you want to attract pollinators to your yard or plant a prairie; growing in shade or sun, sand or loam we'll help you find annuals, perennials and native flowers that thrive in northern gardens and landscapes. 

Flowers for outdoor landscapes

Annual plants live for one growing season and then die, while perennials regrow every spring.

Flowers add color, texture and interest to your lawn or garden. They also provide food and shelter for birds, animals, bees and other pollinators.
