Field of coneflowers

Time to plan your gardens! I love to plant natives here in my Chicago suburban home because the attract all sorts of butterflies and birds. Plus, they are pretty easy to take care of! Because they are prairie plants, they are tolerant to skipping a watering here and there. My best friends! Here is a look at some native plants sales in our area. Some do have the option to pre-order which I recommend taking advantage of. Head to the individual websites for more on pre-ordering:
