Plant Lists

I am a haphazard record keeper, and I am more likely to identify a plant as “granny’s evening primrose” than as Oenothera biennis. Still, it can be helpful to know what you are looking at. So here is a selection of the plants that I grow.

I am starting to identify which plants in my garden are native, and I am adding an * after the name of each native plant.
