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. Can handle damp soil conditions and prefers full sun exposure. This plant spreads by rhizomes to form clumps. It serves as a late-season nectar source. Blooms Aug/Sept/Oct.
