Native Plant Sale

I went to the The Virginia Living Museum Spring Native Plant Sale this weekend.  My son and hubby came along and I ended up buying more than I initially intended partly due to my son insisting that I get one of everything. ;)  He was intrigued by some of the common names so of course they were a must have purchase.  Here’s a list of what I picked up:

  • Eryngium yuccifolium or Rattlesnake Master
  • Helenium autumnale or Helen’s Flower
  • Helenium flexuosum or Dark-eyed Helen
  • Lupinus perennis or Sundial Lupine
  • Phlox pilosa or Downy Phlox
  • Sanguinaria canadensis or Bloodroot
  • Symphyotrichum novea-angiae or New England Aster
  • Symphyotrichum oblongifolium or Aromatic Aster
  • Fraelescantia ohionesis or Ohio Spiderwort
  • Viola pedata or Bird’s Foot Violet

  6. I saw my first Rattlesnake Master in NYC of all places this past summer. It was so cool looking. Looks like you had a good haul, and it is great your family indulges you so.

    It is an interesting looking plant from the photo they displayed. Thanks Les, yep they indulge me. :)
