Each year, CGS grows four-packs of native tall-grass prairie plants to help you build your Ohio pollinator habitat. Our plants are healthy and vigorous, and you won't find a better price for this combination! And each year that you shop the CGS Prairie 4-Pack plant sale, your own garden grows in biodiversity and beauty.


You get 4 different plants in Set A:


  • Monarda punctata (spotted bee balm) 24”H. Also called dotted horsemint, THIS is a monarda worth noticing! Drought-tolerant and highly attractive to pollinators. Flowers are pale purple and pink. Blooms July/Aug/Sept.


  • Panicum virgatum (switch grass) 48”H. By far, the most elegant and well-behaved prairie grass swaying in the wind at CGS. A true four-season plant, we leave switch grass standing in the winter landscape. Provides cover and forage for pollinators, birds, and mammals. Blooms July/Aug/Sept.

  • Rudbeckia fulgida (orange coneflower) 36”H. A tidy, mounding plant with an insane number of warm yellow-orange flowers. Hopelessly cheerful. Blooms July/Aug/Sept.
  • Vernonia gigantea (tall ironweed) to 5’H. A member of the Sunflower family, ironweed has showy bright magenta flowers. Prefers damp soil conditions and full sun exposure. This plant spreads by rhizomes to form clumps. It serves as a late-season nectar source. Blooms Aug/Sept/Oct.
