A Prairie Moon • August 6 Hi Scott, What you are seeing on the map is that it is present in neighboring states, but not KS. If you look at the counties, it does not stop abruptly. It is only present in one little county in NE, and pretty much limited to the mountains in CO. I think it will grow fine for you in KS, but based on its native range, may need a little extra care in the dry summer heat. Please note that this plant is also an aggressive spreader, and may still be aggressive in your area.

Plants

Growing your own plants from seed is the most economical way to add natives to your home. Before you get started, one of the most important things to know about the seeds of wild plants is that many have built-in dormancy mechanisms that prevent the seed from germinating. In nature, this prevents a population of plants from germinating all at once, before killing frosts, or in times of drought. To propagate native plants, a gardener must break this dormancy before seed will grow.3-packs and trays of 32, 38, or 50 plants leave our Midwest greenhouses based on species readiness (being well-rooted for transit) and order date; Spring shipping is typically early May through June, and Fall shipping is mid-August through September. Potted 3-packs and trays of 38 plugs are started from seed in the winter so are typically 3-4 months old when they ship. Trays of 32/50 plugs are usually overwintered so are 1 year old. Plant tray cells are approximately 2” wide x 5” deep in the trays of 38 and 50, and 2.5" wide x 3.5" deep in the 3-packs and trays of 32; ideal for deep-rooted natives. Full-color tags and planting & care instructions are included with each order.

POTTED PLANTS (Trays of 32/38/50 plugs and 3-packs) typically begin shipping early May and go into June; shipping time is heavily dependent on all the species in your order being well-rooted. If winter-spring greenhouse growing conditions are favorable and all species are well-rooted at once, then we ship by order date (first come, first serve). We are a Midwest greenhouse, and due to the challenges of getting all the species in the Mix & Match and Pre-Designed Garden Kits transit-ready at the same time, we typically can't ship before early May. Earlier shipment requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis.(Heirochloe odorata, Anthoxanthum nitens) Creeping perennial to 24 inches, native to colder zones in Europe, Asia, and in North America from Greenland to Alaska. Traditionally used in TWM and Native American medicine as a strewing herb and burnable to sanctify body and space. Plant prefers moist soils in the sun to part shade. Space plants 1 foot apart.
